Here’s another video from my kitchen! 

In this one, Big-O and I are making fried chicken a la Paleo Comfort Foods. This meal is pretty typical Chez Nom Nom Paleo — I utilize three different cooking methods (e.g. frying, nuking, and baking) to ensure that a main protein and two veggie sides get on the table in a timely manner. Plus, Lil-O is almost always glued to the iPad while I’m making dinner…

Paleo Eats: 9/2/11 (& Another Peek At Paleo Comfort Foods!)

It’s Friday, so that means I got my WOD on at the women’s class at CrossFit Palo Alto again! Yippee!

Before class, I fueled up by eating a couple fried eggs topped with chopped tomato and avocado.

Post-WOD, I ate a nuked yam as my post-workout meal.

A couple hours later, I chowed down a mess of fried mini Turkish sliders and a salad with greens, tomatoes, carrots, and sugar snap peas.

After running errands all afternoon, I came home and starting cooking again.

I formed a bunch of mini Turkish sliders from the meat I seasoned yesterday…

…and stored them in the freezer. I purposely made these patties really small so that they’d fry up quickly and wouldn’t require a dunk in the SousVide Supreme.

For dinner, I was dead set on making the fried chicken from the new Paleo Comfort Foods’ cookbook and recruited Big-O as my sous chef.

If you’re too lazy to read the rest of the post, watch the video below:

We mixed the seasoned almond meal batter…

…dipped the chicken drumsticks in the egg wash…

…dredged them in the almond meal batter…

…fried them in coconut oil..

…and popped them in the oven to finish cooking.

To accompany the fried chicken, I roasted cauliflower in the toaster oven…

and nuked a bag of sugar snap peas.

Here’s my dinner plate:

The fried chicken was totally yummy and I was able to get everything on the table in about 45 minutes. Winner, winner, chicken dinner! Winner, winner, Paleo dinner!

I’m so frexcited that there are so many Paleo cookbooks in the turnpike (e.g. Primal Palate’s Make it Paleo and Melicious’s Well Fed)! At this rate, I’ll never have to come up with my own recipes again!
