Southern classic with a healthy twist
Check out my gluten free recipe for organic fried chicken below!
Though I was born in Cali, we moved to central Florida when I was only 2 years old, where I lived for 6 years. Now back in CA, I still find my Southern roots coming out once in a while! This southern trade mark is the perfect example, and I was just craving a little juicy chicken wing last night! You can find these puppies at Trader Joe's and cook em any way you want, but here's my southern girl twist.
For the Chicken:
4 pieces organic chicken wings
2 organic eggs
1/4 cup gluten free almond meal
1/4 cup organic brown rice flour

Mix up the eggs and flour until it makes a paste or a light batter. Then dip the wings in one at a time, covering all around with the mixture. Place the wings in a heated and oiled pan with room between each one. Cook until brown and crispy-- be sure to check if the insides are done or if they are all pink because they take a while to cook thoroughly.
My zucchini side:
1 large organic zucchini
olive oil
sea salt
Parmesan/goat cheese
raw pumpkin seeds.

Now this isn't the typical side of fries, but I really like the way the lightness of the zucchini compliments the heavy breaded chicken.
So to start, again oil a sauteing pan with olive oil and heat on low. Then wash and chop the zucchini into fairly thin slices. Add them into the pan along with some pumpkin seeds and stir until the seeds are slightly brown and the zucchini is soft. Then spoon them out into a bowl and shave some Parmesan on top-- don't forget a topping of sea salt!
 Enjoy this tasty meal!
As we say in the south, BUN APPETAIT!
