Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Make the dip. Thaw frozen spinach and remove excessive liquid. Pour into a bowl and mix with the other ingredients.
  2. Let sit in the fridge while you prepare the skewers and the fries.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C), preferably using the oven’s broil setting.
  4. Divide the chicken into inch-sized pieces and place in a bowl or a plastic bag.
  5. Add spices and oil and mix. Marinate for 5–10 minutes at room temperature. Meanwhile, prepare the fries according to step 9.
  6. Thread the chicken pieces on 4, or 8 smaller, skewers and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Broil for 20–30 minutes or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. Adjust the time according to size. Keep hot while preparing the fries.
  8. If you have a hot-air oven, you can prepare fries and skewers at the same time. But remember that the fries may need a little shorter baking time.
  9. Peel the celery root and cut into strips. Place in a bowl or a plastic bag. Salt and pepper and add oil. Stir, or shake.
  10. Spread out on a baking sheet or in a big baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes ur until soft and golden.

Tip!

It’s convenient to bake the skewers in the oven, but you can also make them in a frying pan or grill.

    Can you deep fry the root Celery ?
  2. Athena McGrath
    Is there a substitute for celery root? Not sure I will be able to find it... I've never seen it in a grocery store before :/

    My question is why do they have a recepie w/ root celery? It has no fat and 12 net grams of carbs for 1 cup. Thats better than having a patato but its not low carb.

    I am in Australia - what could I substitute the celery root for?
  5. Chris
    You could try rutabaga (Swede)

    My family and I have been enjoying almost every single recipe, however, this recipe has a number of issues that I thought would be worth posting about. First, it is very time consuming for a week night meal (chopping, marinading, slicing, two separate items in the oven etc.) Second, celery root or celeriac is difficult to find in the U.S. and also expensive when you do find it. Third, no matter how long I cooked the celery root it never crisped up in the oven - the end result tasted good but was very limp. I'm positive the only way you could get a result similar to the example picture is by deep frying them and unfortunately I do not have a deep fryer. Anyway, just thought I'd leave some feedback. The other recipes have been really easy, tasty and interesting!

    I don't think the 'fries' are suppose to be crispy, the last step in recipe says: bake ...until soft and golden

    I didn't turn my chicken into skewers, simply fried up thighs on top of stove, much less time consuming I thought. I too wondered whether this was really a ketogenic meal, I thought celeriac was fairly high carb...

    We all enjoyed it though. :)

    Celeriac chips - fabulous in taste and texture was good too. I am definitely a convert to this vegetable and it makes a great alternative to green carbs. I almost feel like I am cheating and eating potato chips :-).

    Channelle - you can get celery root here, we just call it celeriac.

    Mame - I had the same concerns but they're only 9g per 100g according to nutritionist advice I received.

    With the fiber in celeriac the carbs balance out nicely so it really isn't an issue.

    I'm just cooking for one person, but I follow the recipes to the T. So I land up with lots of left overs ,so can I just eat this leftovers on a day I don't feel like cooking or do I have to follow the weekly diet plan

    If it wasn't for the spinach dip and the introduction to the concept of "Celery Root" this dish would of been pretty bland and boring. I guess one thing I'm missing from my old diet is the inclusion of BBQ sauces because that would of really helped boost the chicken up. Sadly BBQ sauces come with a lot of sugar and I've yet to find a good tasting BBQ sauce that's sugar free.

    I used rutabaga vs celery root and I liked it. But I'm not a picky eater. Lol

    What does 'broil' mean - UK girl here!

    Roast over some water, you can get broiling pans for ovens
