Coconut Crusted Chicken Patties (Paleo and Whole30)

Coconut Crusted Chicken Patties

I’m really loving this paleo inspired Whole30 plan! I’m 25 days in, 5 to go and will probably take just one day off and do another 30. As I’ve mentioned, my cravings are completely gone, but, I’m missing cream in my morning coffee and a slice of pizza on Friday nights. The options for delicious food that are compliant with Whole30 are seemingly endless though! For instance these Coconut Crusted Chicken patties!

    Coconut and chicken work so well together – I prepare a simplified version every now and then in the oven too, much better than throwing it in the frying oil :)

      Sure, all purpose flour and ground turkey can be used, although, flour isn’t used on the paleo/primal way of eating if you’re following that diet. Enjoy!

    these were amazing! My whole family loved them. I made a fresh mango salsa to go with it, which was the perfect complement to this meal. Thanks for the recipe, will be a regular from now on.

    I made these tonight. I used arrowroot flour instead of almond flour and they worked great. I paired it with a piña colada sauce. Oh my .. So good.

      Yes, they can be frozen. Freeze the patties with parchment or wax paper between them. Preheat oven to 400°. Place frozen patties on baking sheet. Heat 17-20 minutes. Thanks so much for visiting, Rhea!

    I have known the goodness of Coconut Flour and Almond Flour for a while now, but I didn’t know I could use it in all these wonderful ways. I have lost a total of eighty pounds and I have fifty pounds to go. I exercise everyday and eat all the vegetables and fruits on a daily basis, but am stuck losing the last fifty pounds. I am now going to try the Paleo plan, I’ll keep you updated. Now, as far as your pizza cravings, try the Cauliflower pizza crust. I think you’re like it. Holla back after you’ve made it.

      I’ve found ground chicken at my local Kroger and HEB near other fresh chicken products. If you can’t find it, I’m sure your store’s meat department will grind some for you if you ask. Give them a try and let me know how you like them! Thanks for stopping by, Blair!

    I’ve just discovered your awesome blog! I’m going through your whole30 recipes. Last year, I did two whole30 back to back like you. I have never felt so good. But life happened, and I fell off. Darn it, now I’m starting back at day 1. Thank you for these recipes to keep me motivated.

    are these baked or fried? Because the first step is to preheat the oven.

    I made these tonight and they turned out so well! Sautéing the patties in the coconut oil added such a flavorful depth to the chicken. Yum! I paired mine with mashed sweet potatoes. But I like the other reviewer’s ideas about topping a salad with the chicken or pairing it with a sweet salsa. Thanks for this recipe!

    Made these tonight, but subbed ground turkey because I couldn’t wait to try the recipe! We all really liked them! Now I can’t wait to try it with chicken! I’m thinking a pina colada or polynesian sauce would go great with them, but they were flavorful and juicy without it. Looking forward to trying more of your recipes!

      Hey Lynn, I’m so pleased you enjoyed them! I agree, a pina colada sauce would be amazing! I wasn’t in a ‘sauce’ mood when I made them, but, plan to make a ‘drizzle’ of some kind next time! Thanks for stopping by, I’m looking forward to your next visit!
