AIP Chicken Strips with Lovebird Cereal - aiprecipecollection.com

Cereal-ously Crispy Chicken Strips

Yield: 2-4 Servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 18 minutes
Total Time: 28 minutes

♥ RECIPE & IMAGES BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ Cereal-ously Crispy AIP Chicken Strips the whole family will enjoy.

Ingredients

Creamy AIP Salsa Dipper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper 
  2. Place mashed avocado, oil, crushed garlic and water in a bowl and whisk to combine. (This mixture replaces eggs and will be used for dredging your chicken strips so it should be slightly thin in consistency. You may need to add additional oil and/or water depending on the size of your avocado.)
  3. In a zipper bag combine starch OR flour with the garlic powder, onion powder, basil, oregano, thyme, salt, ginger and black pepper and shake gently so that everything is well mixed.
  4. Add chicken strips to the zipper bag and shake until coated. Remove strips to a small plate, leaving the rest of the seasoning mix in the bag. Add crushed Lovebird cereal to the bag.
  5. One at a time, dip the chicken strips in the avocado mix and then immediately roll in the bottom of the zipper bag until generally coated. Once lightly coated give the strip a quick shake in the bottom of the bag and then remove the strip to the prepared baking sheet using your clean hand.  
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 minutes, flip, and bake 8 minutes more. Remove from the oven.
  7. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the broiler heat source and preheat the oven's broiler to high.
  8. Return the pan to the preheated oven and broil for approximately 2 minutes, keeping a close eye so they don't burn.
  9. Remove from the oven and serve immediately!


For the Dip: Combine all ingredients and enjoy!

Notes

* Crush your cereal in a zipper bag until it is a very fine crumble/bread crumb texture - a rolling pin works great for this job.

Avocado Substitution: If you prefer not to use avocado "egg" dredging mixture, you can simply use additive free coconut milk and skip the avocado, water, oil and crushed garlic.

Looking for a kid-friendly, easy AIP dinner? How about some Sloppy Topped Sweet Potatoes … aka AIP Sloppy Joes!

One of our members was looking for a recipe that would satisfy her AIP Kiddo’s cravings for Manwiches and asked me which KC Naturals Nomato Sauce option I’d recommend to recreate their old favorite, so I swung into action and used her inspiration to create a fun and filling dinner.

ShopAIP Healthy Foods // KC Natural - Cherry Garden Tomato-Free Salsa 15.5 ozMost of the AIP Sloppy Joe recipes I’ve seen in the past simply call for a nomato sauce, and you can certainly use nomato sauce in this recipe if you prefer, but for me, the star of the show is the KC Natural’s Garden Cherry Tomato-Free Salsa! I love the flavor .. it lends itself perfectly to re-creating Sloppy Joes without having to add all kinds of ingredients or spices. 

SHOPPING TIP! You can find KC Natural Products in our affiliate shop, Shop AIP, and you can save 10% Off Your First Order with Coupon Code: AIPRECIPE – click here to order.

My non-AIP hubby was very pleased with the taste and thinks we nailed it on this one. If you have a non-AIPer in your midst, you can easily serve this on a bun or on a regular baked potato instead of white sweet potatoes. I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as we did! ♥

Yield: Serves 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes

♥ RECIPE & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ A fun and filling kid-friendly meal to satisfy the sloppy cravings.  

Instructions

  1. Scrub your sweet potatoes and poke holes in them with a fork or sharp pointed knife.
  2. Bake in a 375 Degree Oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on their size. They are done when a fork easily pierces through.
  3. While your potatoes cook, you can prep your ingredients and begin cooking the sloppy joe meat mixture. I suggest starting when your sweet potatoes are almost cooked. If they are finished before your meat is ready, simply leave them in the oven with the heat turned off.
  4. In a skillet, heat the oil and sauté the onions, carrots and celery until onions are translucent and carrots are slightly tender.
  5. Add the ground beef to the skillet and brown the meat stirring frequently until no more pink remains.
  6. Drain any grease from the skillet.
  7. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and continue cooking and stirring for an additional 5-10 minutes.
  8. Remove sweet potatoes from the oven, cut them open and place on a plate or in a small bowl. Top each with 1/4 of the sloppy joe mixture and enjoy immediately.

Missing flavor since you started your AIP journey? This Tandoori Shrimp and Kale Bowl from the new cookbook “AIP Indian Fusion” by Indira Pulliadath will give you a tiny taste of the big flavors that are completely accessible on our healing journey … in spite of what most people believe to be a terribly restrictive diet.

When it comes to the mindset of restriction and the AIP, I tend to roll my eyes a little bit because I honestly feel I’ve added far more than I’ve removed from my diet since starting the AIP! The bottom line is we need to think outside the box, try new things and get a little creative.

Speaking of creativity, Indira has completely blown me away with her creative use of AIP elimination stage compliant ingredients, and her new cookbook is proof that we can still enjoy the delicious depth of flavorful cultural foods while on the Autoimmune Protocol.

Indira has generously allowed me to share her recipe for the Tandoori Shrimp and Kale Bowl with you as a teaser to her cookbook – thank you Indira! (The image pictured is my attempt at the dish and looks a little different than that in the cookbook – I made lots more greens, caulirice and sauce, used green onions and Asian greens instead of kale since that’s what I had on hand.)

Tandoori Shrimp and Kale Bowl

Yield: 1 - 2 Servings

♥ RECIPE BY Indira Pulliadath & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ This TEASER for Indira's AIP Indian Fusion Cookbook will have you convinced in one bowl that you don't have to give up fantastic flavor on your healing journey!

Ingredients

Tandoori Shrimp:

  • 8-10 medium size uncooked shrimp (or 6-8 large), peeled and deveined
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste (recipe available on page 220 of the cookbook - if you don't have it, use 1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger, 1/2 tsp fresh crushed garlic and 1/4 tsp olive oil well blended )
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil or avocado oil
  • 1 cup chopped kale leaves

Cauliflower Coconut Rice:

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cinnamon stick (1 inch long)
  • 1 1/2 cups cauliflower rice (frozen or fresh)
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut

For the Raita Sauce

Optional Veggies/Toppings for the Bowl:

  • Boiled / roasted beets, chopped
  • Thinly sliced red onions

Instructions

    1. FOR THE SHRIMP: After thawing the shrimp, dab it with paper
      towels to remove all excess moisture and place in a mixing bowl. Add the turmeric, salt and the ginger garlic paste and mix with your hands to coat uniformly. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.

      Meanwhile heat a stainless steel or cast iron skillet and add the coconut oil. When hot, add the shrimp to it and cook on medium heat for about 2 minutes. Flip and cook again for 1 more minute. Then add the kale leaves and sauté together with the shrimp for 1 minute. Transfer to everything to a dish. Keep covered.
    2. FOR THE CAULIFLOWER COCONUT RICE:
      Heat a sauce pan and add the coconut oil. When the oil gets hot, add the bay leaf and the cinnamon stick. Then add the cauliflower rice and salt. Add the water and cover and cook
      for about 5-7 minutes or until all the water is evaporated and the caulirice is soft. Add the shredded coconut and mix. Keep aside.
    3. FOR THE RAITA SAUCE:
      Blend all ingredients for the sauce in a food processor until you get a creamy sauce. If the sauce is too watery, add some more coconut cream and blend again.
    4. TO ASSEMBLE THE BOWL:
      Take a large size bowl and place the ‘caulirice’ in the bowl. Then place the shrimp and Kale over it. Place the other veggies (if adding) in the bowl too. Drizzle the raita sauce over the shrimp and the ‘rice’.

Craving flavor and want a fast and easy meal that will satisfy the whole family? Then you’re going to love this Lemon Ginger Stir-Fry! You choose your protein – chicken, shrimp, beef or pork and loads of yummy AIP veggies! This one will help you meet at least half of you daily AIP veggie goal if you’re doing it right.

Don’t worry if you don’t have fresh garlic, ginger and lemon, this dish is still delicious using quick pantry alternatives.

Looking to spice things up .. Add extra ginger!

Want to up your veggie intake? Serve it over cauliflower rice … but in my opinion, that’s more work than you need to go to! Try using sliced cauliflower florets in the stir-fry instead, I find it tricks my hubby into thinkin there’s more chicken in the dish than there really is (shhhhh!). 

Hope you and your family enjoy this as much as we do!

Crispy Instant Pot Chicken Wings

Yield: 2 - 3 Main Servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

♥ RECIPE & IMAGES BY: AIP Recipe Collection ♥ Chicken wings made fast and easy thanks to the Instant Pot ... delicious!

Ingredients

  • 2-3 lbs Chicken Wings (drumettes and wings, tips trimmed and reserved for bone broth) *See notes if your wings are frozen and you're in a hurry*
  • 3/4 Cup Water
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup Coconut Aminos
  • 2 Tbsp Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp Crushed Garlic
  • 2 tsp Fresh Grated Ginger or 1 tsp Ginger Powder
  • Chopped Cilantro or Chopped Chives as garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Rinse and pat dry chicken wings.
  2. In a large bowl mix the salt, onion and garlic powder and toss wings to coat.
  3. Place Instant Pot rack or basket in the bottom of the inner pot and add the water.
  4. Arrange wings on the rack or in the basket in even layers - do not exceed the max line of the pot.
  5. Secure the lid and set to Pressure Cook - High for 10 minutes. Vent should be set to seal.
  6. While the wings cook, mix up your wing sauce in a bowl large enough to toss your wings.
  7. Once cooking time has elapsed, do a quick-release of the steam, being careful not to burn yourself.
  8. Preheat your oven to Broil (high setting) and line a roasting pan or cooking sheet with parchment paper.
    CAUTION: Ensure your parchment is laying flat and not sticking up when broiling to avoid it burning. (You can use foil but I prefer not to use aluminum).
  9. Once venting is complete, carefully open the lid and transfer wings to your bowl with the wing sauce and toss thoroughly to coat.
  10. Arrange wings evenly on your prepared pan in a single layer, ensuring the wings are not touching.
    NOTE: If you like your wings saucy, take a minute to make a second batch of sauce so you can baste them wings when you flip them.
  11. Broil for 2-3 minutes per side. Baste if you've opted for extra sauce.
  12. Wings are finished when you've reached the desired level of crispness.
  13. Toss with extra sauce if you choose.

Notes

TIP: If your wings are frozen and you need a quick meal, you can follow the same recipe - skip the dry seasoning and cook on high pressure for 15 minutes instead.

Before going AIP I used to make a very spicy version of this with a pre-packaged curry-jerk sauce that my husband just loved! A couple of years into my nightshade-free journey I decided to experiment with this old favorite and managed to come up with a dish that satisfies even the non-AIPer in my life. I hope you enjoy my Honey Curry Chicken Breasts.

The nightshade free curry blend recipe included below is something I like to keep mixed up and on hand to add flavor to soups, stews and more.

Honey Curry Chicken Breasts

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

♥ RECIPE & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥  An easy and flavorful Indian inspired dish that the whole family will enjoy. Serve over cauliflower rice or Basmati rice if you've reintroduced.

Ingredients

Nightshade Free Curry Spice Blend

  • 2 Tbsp. Onion Powder
  • 2 Tbsp. Garlic  Powder
  • 2 Tbsp. Turmeric Powder
  • 2 1/2 tsp. Ceylon Cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 tsp. Powdered Ginger
  • 1 1/4 tsp. Ground Clove

Honey Curry Chicken

Thickening Slurry (optional)*

Instructions

  1. Begin by preparing your Nightshade Free Curry Spice Blend - The blend quantities above will provide enough for this recipe PLUS some to keep on hand for seasoning other dishes.
    Add all ingredients to a small glass jar, attach the lid and shake well to combine.
  2. Arrange onion slices in the bottom of a 9" x 13" baking dish.
  3. Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Add 1 Tbsp. of the Nightshade Free Curry Powder Spice Blend, salt and pepper to a small bowl and mix to thoroughly combine.
  5. Dredge chicken breasts through the spices to thoroughly coat all sides and place them atop the bed of onion slices. NOTE: If you run out of seasoning after dredging (this can depend on the size of your chicken breasts), simply add more curry blend, salt and pepper in the quantity you need.
  6. Top each chicken breast with a dot (approximately 1/2 Tbsp.) of coconut oil or ghee - this will melt in the oven.
  7. Mix honey (start with 1-2 Tbsp and adjust to taste) and wine or broth together until well combined - this is easier if your broth is slightly warm or wine is at least at room temperature. Pour very slowly over chicken to avoid rinsing away the spice blend.
  8. Bake at 400°F for a total of about 30 minutes, and during the last 15 minutes of cooking, baste the chicken several times with the pan juices. Cooking time will vary depending on the size of your chicken breasts, ensure they are cooked all the way through and that an internal temperature of 165°F is reached.
  9. Remove chicken to a plate and tent with foil - resting the chicken ensures juices are locked into the chicken.
  10. If you prefer to use a thickened sauce instead of the pan juices, prepare the optional thickening slurry as follows - In a cup or small bowl thoroughly combine the thickening slurry ingredients and then slowly stir it into the sauce and onions remaining in the baking dish until well combined.
  11. Serve onions, sauce and chicken on a bed of cauliflower rice (or basmati rice if you've successfully reintroduced).

Notes

  • If you don't have boneless chicken breasts, you can use bone-in breasts but you may need to adjust your cooking times - ensure the internal temperature reaches 165°F
  • Wine is acceptable in this recipe for the AIP as the alcohol will cook off. If you prefer to completely abstain, simply use the bone broth option
  • I typically don't thicken the sauce from this recipe (I just drizzle the juices over the chicken and cauliflower rice or rice), but I've included instruction for thickening in case that is your preference.

AIP Tzatziki by AIPRecipeCollection.com

Dairy-Free AIP Tzatziki Sauce

Yield: 1.5 Cups
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 1 day
Total Time: 1 day 10 minutes

♥ RECIPE & IMAGES BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ Looking for a fun way to use budget-friendly ground beef to serve as a flavorful meal or even a game-day appetizer? Try my AIP Grilled Kofta Kababs with Dairy-Free AIP Tzatziki Sauce!

Ingredients

Instructions

For best flavor, this recipe is best prepared a day in advance. If you want to enjoy this recipe but don't have time to wait for the flavors to meld overnight, simply prepare it as early in the day as possible and be sure to squeeze the liquid from the shredded cucumber.

  1. Grate the cucumber and allow it to drain through a fine mesh sieve overnight in the fridge.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut cream, garlic, oil, vinegar, lemon juice and salt. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Just before serving, mix the previously grated and drained cucumber along with the fresh dill to the coconut cream mixture and stir to combine. Serve chilled with AIP Kofta Kebabs for drizzling or dipping.

Notes

*TIP* Since I started the AIP I always keep a couple of cans of coconut milk in my refrigerator so I have coconut cream available if I need it.

Zero Waste: If you're using cream from the tops of coconut milk cans (instead of straight coconut cream in the can) be sure to reserve the watery liquid that remains - this is delicious in a smoothie.

Left-Over Sauce: Refrigerate it and use it as a sauce on an AIP wrapped sandwich, as a dip for veggies or AIP crackers or flatbread or even use it to flavor other a batch of AIP meatballs - it's a serious flavor bomb!

♥ RECIPE & IMAGES BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ Looking for a fun way to use budget-friendly ground beef to serve as a flavorful meal or even a game-day appetizer? Try my AIP Grilled Kofta Kababs with Dairy-Free AIP Tzatziki Sauce!

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound truLOCAL Lean Ground Beef - Grass-Fed & Finished 
  • 1/4 Cup Red Onion, very finely chopped/minced
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Oregano, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper (Stage 1 Reintroduction)

Instructions

For best flavor infusion begin a day ahead so the flavors have plenty of time to meld. If you're in a hurry, this recipe is still tasty, just try to give it about 15-30 minutes - just enough time to soak your wooden skewers, set the table and prep a simple green or Greek salad (check some out in my AIP Recipe Collection Facebook Group).

  1. Thaw your truLOCAL ground beef in the refrigerator overnight or defrost in its packaging in cold water.
  2. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly using your hands. You want the meat to be on the mushy side. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
    NOTE: Some recipes for gyros or kofta suggest blending all ingredients in a food processor, but I prefer easier cleanup and opt for just working the ingredients with my hands.
  3. Soak 8-10 wooden skewers in water for about 15-30 minutes minimum to help prevent them from burning (*TIP* See my suggestion below for grilling with bamboo skewers). Lightly oil the grates of an outdoor grill and preheat it to medium-high.
  4. Remove skewers from water when you are ready to begin.
  5. Take a handful portion of the meat mixture and mold it on a wooden skewer. Repeat the process until you have run out of meat (should be enough for 8 to 10 skewers). For best results, make sure each kofta kebab is about 1 inch in thickness.
  6. Place the kofta kebabs on the lightly oiled, pre-heated grill and cook over medium-high heat for 4 minutes on one side, turn over and grill for another 3-4 minutes.
  7. Serve immediately with Dairy-Free AIP Tzatziki Sauce and a simple green salad or an AIP Greek Salad.

Notes

* TIP * Use a strip of aluminum foil on the grill to protect the bamboo skewers from the flame of the BBQ.

Yield: 4 Servings

Cook Time: 15 minutes
Additional Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

♥ RECIPE & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ This Asian-inspired meal is fast, easy and AIP elimination stage compliant. Easy grilled veggies and our Fennel Citrus Salad on the side make it worthy of Sunday supper.

Ingredients

Marinade

  • 1 Orange, zested
  • 2 Medium Oranges, juiced
  • 1 Thumb of Fresh Ginger, peeled and grated or minced
  • 1 Large Garlic Clove, minced
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Aminos
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • ½ tsp Himalayan salt

Instructions

  1. Thaw your truLOCAL pork tenderloin in the refrigerator overnight or
    defrost in its packaging in cold water.
  2. Mix all marinade ingredients together in a shallow glass dish. Arrange tenderloin in a single layer and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for one hour, or up to 24 hours. For most flavorful results, turn the tenderloin halfway through the marinating time.
  3. Bring pork to room temperature approximately 15 minutes before grilling, this will help ensure your meat cooks more evenly.
  4. While the pork is coming to room temperature, prepare this easy Fennel Citrus Salad - click here for the recipe.
  5. Preheat and outdoor grill to high heat.
  6. Remove pork tenderloin from marinade and place on pre-heated
    grill. Season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat until browned on all sides.
  7. Reduce grill to medium heat, cover and continue grilling, turning and moving until pork reaches internal temperature of 145 F. (Approximate cooking time will be about 15 minutes. Depending on your grill, you may need to reduce the flame and/or cook over indirect heat to ensure the pork is evenly cooked and does not burn.)
  8. Once pork reaches desired internal temperature, remove to plate,
    tent with foil and allow to rest 5 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving. This allows the juices to settle back into the meat.
  9. While the meat rests, grill your choice of vegetables as a side - we suggest Baby Bok Choi and Green Onions or Leeks - follow this easy recipe for AIP Grilled Vegetables.
  10. Drizzle pork with the Honey Lime Dressing from the Fennel Salad.

Before I started the AIP I used to love a big ‘ol feed of hot wings. Now, I still love wing night, but without the hot sauce. Now, my tastes have changed and crispy wings are my thing! I’m not saying I don’t miss a good sauce, but overall I’m too lazy to make my own, so I created these quick and delicious AIP BBQ chicken wings without the BBQ Sauce!

My goal was to create a simple recipe that doesn’t require much time in the kitchen or pre-planning for marinating (which most wing recipes call for if they’re not slathering them in sauce), and I think I pulled it off! I made sure my non-AIP hubby had some BBQ sauce on hand just in case he wasn’t thrilled with my creation, but he was more than happy with them sans-sauce. I call that an AIP winner!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Thaw your truLOCAL chicken wings in the refrigerator overnight or defrost in their packaging in cold water.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl. Using your hands, massage the herbs and spices into the wings so they are all well coated.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high heat
  4. Lower the flame to the lowest setting possible in one zone of your BBQ - leave the other zone set to medium-high.
  5. Place the wings in the cooler zone of the grill and cook with the lid closed. Flip the wings every 5 minutes, for a total cooking time of approximately 20 minutes - they should be golden brown, crispy and completely cooked through. As they cook, keep a close eye on the grill - if there are flare-ups or the wings begin to burn, move the wings to a cooler part of the grill or reduce the heat.
  6. Serve immediately.
