Southern Craving

We all have a craving for food that's not so good for you every now and then. This is for those special occasions when you catch a waft of the Popeye's down the street, and you just have to have fried chicken! I'll probably bake it next time to make it a little more waist friendly. The mashed potatoes are really mashed cauliflower, but the consistency is spot on and you can pile it on your plate as much as you want! This is another one of my husband's favorites. It got two "yums "up and a "what's in this?"

Ingredientes for the fried chicken:

2 chicken breasts cut into strips
1/2 cup of brown rice flour
1/4 cup of coconut flour
1/2 tbsp of garlic powder
1 tbsp of onion powder
1/2 tbsp of paprika
S&P and cayenne pepper al gusto
Olive oil 

Paso a paso: 
1) In a bowl or on a large plate, mix all dry ingredients.

2) Coat chicken with dry mixture. Let chicken rest in flour for 3 minutes, and toss around in flour mixture again, so that the chicken is thoroughly covered.

3) Heat up olive oil and place chicken strips in. Turn over after about 5 minutes and cook for another 3-5 minutes, until golden brown.

Ingredientes for mashed "potatoes:"
1 head of cauliflower
Organic butter (optional)
S&P al gusto

Paso a paso:

1) Cut and steam cauliflower. Blend until it resembles mashed potatoes. (Add butter while blending.)

2) Serve cauliflower mash with fried chicken and greens.
