Paleo | Coconut Crusted Chicken Nuggets

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.
