  • Primal Chicken Nuggets

    I saw this recipe on pinterest and like it so much I thought I'd share it here. They were amazing and to me just as good if not better than the real deal!

    1 lb ground chicken
    1 egg yolk
    1 tsp onion powder
    ¼ tsp garlic powder
    ¼ cup + ½ cup almond flour/meal
    ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut/meal
    ½ cup coconut oil
    salt & pepper to taste

    Preheat oven to 375°.

    In a bowl combine ¼ cup almond flour, ½ cup coconut and salt & pepper. Mix to combine.

    In a separate bowl, combine the ground chicken, ½ cup almond flour, onion powder, garlic powder, egg yolk and salt & pepper. Mix well until everything is incorporated.

    In a sauté pan, melt coconut oil on medium heat. Take about 2 tablespoons worth of the chicken mixture and roll into a ball and then coat with the coconut and almond mixture. Repeat with the remaining chicken. You should make about 15 to 18 chicken nugget/balls.

    In small batches place nuggets into heated coconut oil and cook on each side for about 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer balls to a parchment lined bake pan and place in oven for 4 to 5 minutes to allow the chicken to cook through. Repeat with the remaining chicken nuggets.
