Sweet Potato Chicken Poppers

Servings: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken (uncooked, preferably pastured)
  • 2 cups raw (not cooked) sweet potato, finely grated (use a wide cheese grater or a food processor)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil + 1 tsp for greasing the baking sheet
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2-3 sprigs green onion, chopped fine
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Optional : 1 tsp paprika or chili powder

 

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400 F and lightly grease a lined baking sheet with coconut oil

Take the raw sweet potato and squeeze it with a paper towel or cheese cloth to remove any excess liquid

Then, combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and thoroughly combine

Begin rolling the mixture into small, slightly flattened poppers about one inch in diameter (you’ll have about 20-22 poppers) and place them on the cooking sheet

Place in the oven for 25-28 minutes, flipping half way through

Crisp further in a pan or place under the broiler if desired for 1-2 minutes to crisp further

Remove from the oven when thoroughly cooked through

Allow to cool and serve with your favorite sauce!
