- Chicken- I used 3 chicken breasts w/leg & skin.
- ½ cup Paleo flour (can substitute with another flour like Almond, Amaranth, Coconut)
- ½ cup Almond flour
- ½ tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion diced
- 3-4 celery ribs, diced
- 3-4 carrots, diced
- 2 (32 oz) Cartons of Chicken Broth
- 1 tsp ginger (optional- fresh or powder)
- 1 tsp garlic (optional)
- 2-3 Tbsp Parsley (optional)
- 4 Cups Spinach (optional)
- ¾ Cup Tapioca Flour
- 3 Tbs coconut Flour
- 1 Egg
- 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- Mix flour, black pepper, and salt together. Coat the chicken with flour mixture (leave on the skin/fat).
- Place olive oil in large, heavy-bottomed pan. Cook chicken on medium heat for about 4-5 minutes on each side. It should look golden brown.
- Set the chicken aside. Sautee onion in pan. Optional- sauté fresh garlic. Add in celery and carrots.
- Pour 1.5 to 2 containers of chicken broth over sautéed veggies. Optional- add in ginger.
- Place chicken back in the pan & simmer for about 30 minutes. Cooking time depends on how thick the chicken is. Once the chicken is easily falling off the bones it’s done.
- Remove the chicken, once it’s finished cooking. Discard the skin and shred the chicken. Place shredded chicken back into pan.
- Mix all dumpling ingredients together. It’ll be a sticky texture. Form it into dumplings.
- If too thin add more coconut flour. If too thick add more coconut milk.
- Place dumplings in soup & let it simmer for about 5-7 minutes on each side.
You can mix by hand, but the mixture wasn’t as fluffy as using a food processor.
- Adding shredded raw cheese or bacon bits to the dumpling mixture would take this recipe to next level.
- You can add in spiraled zoodles like Zucchini.
- You can make homemade bone broth from the chicken bones.
- This tastes great with 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp thyme & fresh ginger.
- For a sweeter taste, try using Parsnips (seen below).
JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
