I have made chicken nuggets in the past, and the process here is pretty much the same. I liked these ones better. Maybe because I can use ketchup now?! haha They were so good though, and easy to make.
I found this recipe on pinterest here. I changed it a little bit. It fits with the whole30, iifym, and paleo thing I got going on right now. :)
- 1 lb. Ground Chicken
- 1 Egg Yolk
- 1 T. Onion Powder
- 1 T. Garlic Powder
- 1/2 C. Almond Floud
- 1/2 C. Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- 1 T. Coconut Oil
Start by combining the chicken, egg yolk, and seasonings in a bowl.
Place the coconut and almond flour in a smaller bowl and mix together. (This is the coating)
Take your chicken and form small nuggets and roll around in the flour mixture. Once this is all done, place in a hot skillet that has had time to melt the coconut oil
Cook for about 7-8 minutes per side, depending on how thick your nuggets are.
Prepare a side :) Bobby cut up sweet potato for us to make chips with
This made 16 nuggets. Each 104 calories
