Yes, You CAN Eat Chicken Nuggets!

Everyone who knows me...friends, family, and readers...knows how much I absolutely love to try out recipes and find new and delicious ways to make healthy meals.

Well, last week, I was talking to my good friend and business partner Jeff, and I said,

Chicken Nuggets

"I made the best Chicken McNuggets the other night."

Immediately, he said,

"What? Did you really just called them Chicken McNuggets?!?"

Oh my goodness! I did!

Even I have been slightly brainwashed by the fast food industry's marketing tactics, and instead of calling them regular old nuggets, I added the "Mc"...uggghhh!

Here is my new delicious recipe:

Isabel's Chicken Nuggets (minus the Mc)

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Coconut oil, for cooking
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a bowl combine 1/4 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup shredded coconut, salt, and pepper. In a separate bowl combine ground chicken, 1/2 cup almond flour, onion powder, garlic powder, egg yolk, salt, and pepper. Use your hands to mix well.

Melt coconut oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Take about 1 heaping tablespoon worth of the chicken mixture and roll into a ball (more if you want the nuggets to be larger) and coat with the coconut and almond mixture. Repeat until you have made all of the chicken mixture into balls/nuggets.

In small batches, place the balls into the heated coconut oil and cook on each side for about 3-4 minutes. Transfer the balls to a baking sheet or baking dish lined with parchment paper. Cook in pre-heated oven for 4-5 minutes to allow the chicken to fully cook. Repeat until you have cooked all of the nuggets.

This recipe is sure to be a hit with the kids (and any adults in your house)!
