I thought that I would share two wonderful recipes made with chicken. Hope that you enjoy them as much as I do...

Chicken Nuggets

2 tablespoons sea salt
2 organic chicken breasts (deboned)
2 eggs or egg replacer
1 1/2 cups oil or more (sunflower, safflower, soy, almond, avocado, or peanut) watch for allergies

Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl, cut up chicken into nugget sized pieces and then dip into the egg. Place dry ingredients in zip lock bag, and then place egg coated chicken into the bag to toss; covering the chicken with batter. Fry until golden brown. Makes about 16 nuggets

Roasted Apple Chicken
