Chick-fil-A chicken tastes amazing, I’ll give it that. But with MSG and a bunch of other junk added, it’s just not on my “good” list. My kids said these chicken strips are “as good as Chick-fil-A’s!” Out of the mouths of babes. And so much better for you, too!
Recipe: Chick-fil-A Rival Chicken Strips (serves a family of 7)
3 lbs chicken tenderloins (skinless)
3 TBSP olive oil
juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 TBSP paprika
1 TBSP garlic salt
1/4 cup tapioca flour or arrowroot starch
1/2 cup coconut oil
In a large bowl, combine chicken, olive oil, lemon juice, paprika, garlic salt and tapioca flour. Heat coconut oil in a cast iron skillet or other large skillet (cast iron works best here, though) over medium-high heat and add pieces of chicken. Don’t crowd the chicken! Fry for about 3 minutes on each side, until no longer pink inside. Remove to paper towels to drain, and repeat as needed. Eat promptly.
