Root Chip Chicken Strips

by December 4, 2015

TERRA Exotic vegetable chips contain some pretty fantastic ingredients. They are a fried chip so shouldn’t be eaten on a daily basis, but they are a great treat and an alternative to potato chips. Not to mention they are trans fat free and contain 6 root vegetables not common in our everyday diet:
  • Taro: native to Southeast Asia and first cultivated over 4,000 years ago
  • Yuca: a history that dates back to the 16th century in Portugal and Spain
  • Sweet Potato: did you know that the sweet potato is not related to the yam but is rather the only edible member of the morning glory family? Now you do!
  • Batata: prized in the Caribbean countries for its sweet taste for centuries
  • Parsnip: member of the same family as carrots, fennel, parsley, and celery
Also, as a bonus, root vegetables are naturally packed with fiber. Take that regular (and boring) potato chip!

A healthful twist on breaded and baked chicken strips. You wont taste the coconut milk in this recipe, it only adds to the ‘deep fry’ effect and keeps the chicken really moist.
