Kid friendly foods are on my radar this week. Paleo Chicken Strips & Honey Dill Dip fit that description! I am headed to visit family next week and spend some quality time with my nephews (7 and almost 4). We have a list of things to see and do: play, art projects, read, trips, etc. We spoil each other, but with experiences rather than toys. That is my official job as “Aunty.” I provide the experiences and they spoil me with all the love and adoration. We surprise the kids with my visits so they don’t constantly ask my brother and sister-in-law when I’ll be there. I feel the love. Unfortunately my insides can’t handle the processed foods my family eats, so I was hoping to have a food plan that included some things the kids might eat and that won’t make me feel awful. I haven’t been eating strictly paleo, and with stress at work, I’ve had this intense desire to spend any possible moments I have in bed – in bed eating candy. Naps and sugar would be my ideal day. But we all know, the mini vacation with my family will be action packed with no time for naps. Paleo Chicken Strips and Honey Dill Dip are kid friendly, and great for any meal!

Looks yummy, Holley. Have a great time with the kids. Raj’s nephews are going to plant the potatoes for me this morning! Plants always seem to grow better with their touch!
That is true! Kids are the BEST planters! Thank you! I’m looking forward to it.

Um, but adults can eat this too right? Coconut and chicken go together like eggs and bacon. I like to use the coconut flakes for my version, but the flour probably sticks better. Sometimes the flakes peel away if I’m not super careful with handling.
Heck yes! Good for all ages!
I dunno Holley. I think maybe reserve this for adults who still think they’re children. (Adam, I think you’re allowed, haha!)
