There really haven’t been too many paleo recipes that we’ve tried that haven’t been good, very good or excellent.
This Breaded Mustard Chicken did not taste like “regular” breaded meat but it was close. The almond flour that’s used as the breading doesn’t stay as “attached” to the chicken though. This is something we’ll need to work on — unless anyone out there knows of any tricks that could be helpful in using the almond meal as breading?
The chicken was complemented with a Holiday Salad with a Cranberry Apple Orange Vinaigrette. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Well, it was! This is going to sound “old” to those who have been following my food posts but I have to say it again — make sure you serve the vinaigrette on the side so that everyone can add as much or as little as they like. There — I said it!
To make matters even better, we also had Maple Roasted Carrots, Apples and Onions as a “side.”
Don’t add too much maple syrup though or it will be too sweet. Yes, there is such a thing as something being too sweet, especially if you’re following a paleo diet. We use Kirkland’s Maple Syrup that we purchase at Costco.
All three recipes worked good together.
