Hi everyone, welcome if this is your first time visiting my blog, and reading my ramblings. I am very happy to see here. I worked the last few days, and as promised I’m posting this recipe for whole30/paleo air-fried lollipop chicken with spicy pineapple dipping sauce, whew…… this is a mouthful for a tittle lol, but then again I have a lot of those, it is ok I don’t mind if you don’t. I don’t know what to do with myself since I got the air fryer, it is so much easier to make certain things in there, I hadn’t used it for much, but chicken is one of those things to use it for. Most people do like to have some fried chicken, but fried chicken can be very unhealthy in that it is battered and deep fried. Fried chicken is big in the American diet, in fact, most restaurants sell fried chicken one way or another. Using an air fryer is a way to keep from deep frying your foods, which is much healthier.
This recipe is called lollipop chick in that the skin is separated from the bone end, pushed down and makes it appear in the shape of a lollipop, this type of chicken originated in India. It is usually marinated in spices and deep fried in oil. This Whole30/Paleo version can also be oven baked. off course it cooks much quicker in the air fryer, but the oven definitely works also. The dipping sauce is a sweet sauce made with pineapple juice and coconut aminos (holy grail) LOL, with a hint of spice and lemongrass and the best part is sauce is ready in 10 minutes. This sauce also goes really well with salmon, yummy…..this can be enjoyed as an appetizer, or the main dish with a side of potatoes and vegetables or even some cauliflower rice. With this little cuties, what do you have to lose, try them and comment.
