Southwestern Chicken Patties (GAPS/GF/Paleo)



I was going to make soup tonight for supper…stopped in at the meat center for some burger, and lo and behold…they had fresh ground chicken with no additives…  🙂  Change of plans…

Southwestern Chicken Patties (GAPS/GF/Paleo)

Made:  9-10 patties (enough for lunches tomorrow too)

3 pounds of ground chicken

2 jalapeno peppers (medium size)

1/4 of a red onion

2 eggs

1 handful fresh cilantro

1 tsp sea salt

coconut oil for frying

Chop the peppers, onion and cilantro.  I put mine in the food processor, chop until fine.  Mix in large bowl with remaining ingredients.  Shape into patties and fry in coconut oil until cooked through.

I served ours topped with my salsa verde, avocado on the side, and these squash fries (I fried ours in coconut oil instead of baked).


Mango Salsa (GAPS, GF)


I’ve been watching “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” and “Hungry for Change” on Netflix today for motivation, and I’m trying to turn it around from my holiday binging…so here we go.  I am making this tonight for supper.  We are having it with fish, although I think it would be good with chicken or pork too.


Mango Salsa (GAPS, GF):

Chop up:

1 red onion

1 cucumber

2 red peppers

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

3-4 mangoes (I only had three, wish I had four so I’d say 4…)

1/4 – 1/2 c. chopped cilantro

Mix all in bowl.  Juice two limes and put juice over salsa.  I thought about adding raw honey but decided against it, but it’s a thought. 🙂  This makes a decent size bowl – there are six of us eating tonight and I think it will be just enough.

Fluffy Frosting (GF, GAPS option)


We got done baking these awesome cutout cookies from the “A Girl Worth Saving” blog, and I whipped up frosting.  We liked the frosting so well, I thought I had better share the recipe.  Super duper easy.  P.S.  I give her cookie recipe a big thumbs up.  We tried some last year where the dough fell apart…not so good.  These rocked.

Fluffy Frosting (GF, GAPS Option)

1 c. palm shortening (I used Spectrum brand)

1/2 c. raw honey

1 t. vanilla

Beat all together until mixed well and fluffy.  We added non-toxic red and green food coloring from the Natural Candy Store.  Probably not exactly GAPS legal, so you can leave it out if you wish.  They have alot of other baking decorations too.

Frost your cookies, eat them up. 🙂


Merry Christmas everyone!
