Fried Chicken Bites

 

003

This one was super easy, but turned out to be the BEST chicken bites I’ve ever had.  We went a little plain jane with them, but add any seasonings that suite your fancy.

Ingredients

Freshly ground flour
chicken breasts (cut into bite size pieces)
Real Salt
Coconut Oil, extra virgin

Put enough coconut oil into a skillet to fry the pieces in.  After cutting the chicken into pieces I salted them directly.  Then tossed into the flour and let sit while heating the oil.  Once the oil is heated fry as you would any fried chicken.

This was the tastiest and juiciest chicken I’ve ever had.  I can’t wait to fry a whole chicken like this.

We devoured it all in almost in one sitting.

About TheHippyGardener

I am a stay-at-home mom (and step-mom) and I love to experiment with traditional cooking and living. Even though I (and my blog) am called TheHippyGardener ~ lately I’ve been focusing more on traditional food cooking and learning all the techniques that are involved, as we haven’t had the space or resources to do a lot of gardening. I have noticed huge improvements in my family’s health since cutting out all processed foods and controlling the ingredients that go into everything we eat. Plus it’s super fun to learn the “old ways”. I’m really excited to be a part of the Grain Mill Wagon Challenge and look forward to all the new recipes my family will get to enjoy.

View my blog: TheHippyGardener I absolutely loved doing the WonderMill Grain Mill Challenge. This came at a time when we were just learning about stocking up a long-term food pantry and buying bulk wheat berries ties right in with that. I've barely made a dint in our store of wheat so far and have made so many wonderful things so far. I look forward to all the recipes I will make in the future as well. My sourdough starters have never been this active before using fresh milled flour. My sweetie swears those were the best pancakes he's ever had!! Thanks to WonderMill for allowing me to take part in this challenge!

  1. Oooh, those look SO good. I’m wondering what type of wheat you use? Soft white wheat would probably work well for these, since it doesn’t require a rise. I wonder what would taste best, though? Thanks for sharing! My kids and husband would love something like this one night this week :)

  2. You’re welcome! Right now my grain mill bucket is full of soft wheat ground on the pastry setting. So it will be interesting to try this recipe again when I have the hard wheat ground. And I used Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin coconut oil (see my blog for links, if interested). The taste is very pure and milder than any that I’ve purchased in the health food stores in the past. Everything I’ve used it for I’ve absolutely LOVED!

    I’d love to hear back about how much you all enjoy dinner if you make these. I love simple things like this that are so yummy. :)

  3. So, I made these for lunch today for me and the kiddos. I used hard white wheat, since that’s what I had ground. And olive oil, ’cause that’s what I had. They turned out SO yummy!! Super good, and so simple. Every one of my kids gobbled them all up. Thanks for posting this recipe! It’s a keeper ;)

  4. Yay!! i’m so glad it was a hit and a keeper. Score! ;)
