Sweet Potato Chicken Poppers (Paleo, AIP & Whole 30)


Sweet Potato Chicken Poppers (Paleo, Whole30 & AIP)

Let me tell you a story about a little girl who literally ate zero animal protein until she was about 20 that wasn’t in chicken nugget form. She was so unhealthy and out of touch with her bodies innate intelligence to eat real food that she would gag at any protein that wasn’t a nugget. She did not discriminate when it came to nuggets… dinosaur shaped, fast food, frozen, they were all Gucci. It wasn’t she grew up, was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and gut issues, and actually got a firm understanding of her health did she realize that those nuggets were not the best choice. So… clearly, I’m talking about myself here. Maybe dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets weren’t my friend then or now, but these chicken poppers are the real food, adult version of the chicken nuggets that I loved for years!

When I first made these and got a whiff of them cooking in the oven, it seriously smelled like any game day snack that you’d find in a sports bar or at any party. My mouth was water the second they came out of the oven! The smell, the texture, and the nostalgic feel that I was eating chicken nuggets make these little dudes the perfect healthy comfort food.

Seriously, it makes these a great dish to bring along to your upcoming party, or super bowl Sunday gathering to ensure that you have something healthy to eat for yourself, while still having something delicious to share. Don’t be that guy that brings kale chips… be the guy that brings sweet potato chicken poppers.

Sweet Potato Chicken Poppers (Paleo, AIP & Whole 30)

THE RECIPE

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 lb ground chicken (uncooked)
  • 2 cups uncooked sweet potato, finely grated (I used a wide cheese grated like this or you can use your food processor)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil + 1 tsp for greasing the baking sheet
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour (I recommend this brand )
  • 2-3 sprigs green onion, chopped fine
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Optional : 1 tsp paprika or chili powder (not AIP but adds a kick!)

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and lightly grease a lined baking sheet with coconut oil
  2. Take the raw sweet potato and squeeze it with a paper towel or cheese cloth to remove any excess liquid
  3. Then, combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and thoroughly combine
  4. Begin rolling the mixture into small, slightly flattened poppers about one inch in diameter (you’ll have about 20-25 poppers) and place them on the cooking sheet
  5. Place in the oven for 25-28 minutes, flipping half way through. Crisp further in a pan or place under the broiler if desired for 1-2 minutes to crisp further. Remove from the oven when thoroughly cooked through
  6. Allow to cool and serve with your favorite sauce! These are made for dipping so pair them with guacamole, ketchup, mustard, etc!
