Chicken Nuggets with Fries and Ketchup - healthified.

I love fastfood as much as the next girl. But we all know that fastfood is not exactly helping with weightloss. So, just as I did with my Turkey Burger before, I came up with a version for Chicken Nuggets with Fries and Ketchup - healthified.


For this recipe you will need:
  • Chicken breast
  • Almond Flour (Or Ground Almonds)
  • Pumpkin
  • Mushrooms
  • Spinach
  • Garlic
  • Shallots
  • Broccoli
  • Bell-pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Spices
 
We will start with the Fries. I discovered a Turkish store in town with a huge selection of amazing fruits and vegetables. Last week they had this HUMONGOUS squash witch they sold in slices, so I got a piece.


Begin by cutting the squash into frie-sized pieces.


Put them in a bowl and add some olive oil and spices. I used Paprika, garlic powder and tomato-mozzarella spice.


Next cut your chicken breast into nugget sized pieces.


Go to work on them with a meat tenderizer.


Mix a bit of almond flour with spices and salt and coat the pieces. You won't be using all of the flour - but don't re-use it since it got in contact with raw chicken meat.

 

Put the fries and the nuggets into the oven, around 150° C - 180° C for about 25-30 Minutes.


Now for the vegetables! Cut off some broccoli and steam it for about 20 Minutes. I have a steamer but you can do it any way you like or boil it.


Next we will make some extra vegetables. Cut the mushrooms and fry them in a pan with a bit of love oil.


Clean and cut the spinach and the shallot.


Since the spinach will be done very quickly wait till the mushrooms are almost done before adding it. Season with salt and spices to your liking.


Now for the Ketchup: Chop up a red bellpepper and a clove of carlic. With a bit of water put them in a blender until you have a nice sauce before pouring in a pot.

 
 

 Start reducing the sauce until you have a thick consistency.

 

By the time your Nuggets and Fries are done ...


... your Mushrooms should be done, too ...


... so should your brokkoli ...


... and your ketchup.


Arrange everything and serve!


There you have it: Chicken Nuggets with Fries and Ketchup - healthified.

Enjoy and be sexy,
