Chicken Nuggets


Dinner, Lunch, Main Dish, Poultry


1 pound Smart Chicken breasts

1 cup almond flour

1 tsp Celtic sea salt

1/2 tsp parsley

1/2 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp pepper

2 eggs, beaten


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, mix the eggs. In another medium bowl, mix the almond flour and salt (and additional spices if desired).

Cut the chicken into bite sized nuggets. Dip the nugget into the egg mixture, then into the almond flour mixture. Coat each nugget well. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown. Timing will depend on how big you make the nuggets. Makes 6 servings.


These had no flavor. Maybe use the pork rind fried chicken recipe if I want to do nuggets.
