Paleo Chicken Nuggets and Sauce

For some reason this meal makes me feel like a kid. I loved chicken nuggets growing up, but now that I know more about what goes into fast food nuggets or how greasy and unhealthy frozen ones could be, I stopped eating them. This is a great, tasty alternative to chicken nuggets.


Ground Chicken


1 Egg, whisked

Garlic Powder

Sea Salt and Pepper

1/2 C. Coconut Flour

Coconut Oil, for pan


1. Whisk the egg in a medium sized bowl and then add your ground chicken. Mix in the rest of your spices and cilantro.


2. Put the coconut flour in a small bowl and roll nugget sized balls of chicken mixture in flour. Coat evenly.


3. Melt a few teaspoons of coconut oil into a pan and lay each nugget in pan and cook on medium heat for about 12 minutes. (6-7 minutes per side)

I made a mustardy/coconut aminos sauce

You will need:

1/4 C. Coconut Aminos (a paleo soy sauce replacement)

1/8 C. White Wine Vinegar

1 T. Ground Mustard


And just mix it all together
