Coconut Chicken Tenders and Sweet Potato Bites

For me the key to sticking to a strict paleo lifestyle is to plan, plan, plan my meals. This generally means I cook for most of the week on Sunday. This maybe the easiest "recipe" ever...but it's certainly one of my favorites!

Coconut Chicken Tenders:
Package of chicken tenders (or chicken breasts)
2 eggs
1 cup of coconut flour

Preheat the oven to 350 and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then all you need to do is beat the eggs in a small bowl and put the coconut flour in another small bowl. Dip the chicken in the egg bath and then coat it in the flour. Place the chicken on the baking sheet and bake for about 25 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Sweet Potato Bites

2 small sweet potatoes, chopped, skin on

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder (could also use cinnamon or nutmeg)

Sea salt

Melt coconut oil over low heat, toss in ancho chili powder, and a bit of sea salt. Coat the sweet potatoes in the oil mixture and put them on a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Bake at 375 for about 25 minutes

This would be an awesome meal for a family with kiddos. Whip up some paleo ketchup or ranch as a dip and the kids likely won't even realize they're not eating traditional breaded chicken tenders or nuggets!
