These are by far the best chicken nuggets I have ever had! This recipe is a must try. Prepare the BBQ sauce first.
- 1 Pound ground chicken
- 1 Egg yolk
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 cup + 1/2 cup almond flour (or preferred flour)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- Salt & Pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In bowl combine 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup coconut and salt & pepper, mix to combine.
- In separate bowl combine the ground chicken, 1/2 cup flour, onion powder, garlic powder, egg yolk and salt & pepper. Mix well until everything is incorporated.
- In sauté pan, melt coconut oil on medium heat. Take about 2Tbsp work of chicken mixture and form into a nugget and then coat with the coconut and almond mixture. Repeat with remaining chicken. You should make about 15-18 chicken nuggets..
- In small batches place nuggets into heated coconut oil and cook on each side for about 3-4 minutes.
- Transfer nuggets to a parchment lined bake pan and place in oven for 4-5 minutes to allow chicken to cook through. Repeat with remaining nuggets.
