My name is Monica and I am a recovering Chicken Nugget Fiend. Yes, as a youngster, I happily bounced through the golden arches for delicious Chicken Nuggets but, now that I've peered behind the scenes of that culinary process....EEEEEEKS!!! Let's make our own delicious and nutritious version instead.

These are fantastically fun snacks for the kids and serving these with yummy dipping sauces really takes me back! Try this nutrient dense BBQ dipping sauce that you’re gonna love!

Grain Free Chicken Nuggets Ingredients:

• 2 lbs chicken breast*
• 2-3 eggs**
• 1 cup blanched almond flour
• 2 tablespoons arrowroot – I use this one
• 2 tablespoons Pecorino Romano
• 2 tablespoons chopped dehydrated onions
• 1 ½ teaspoon unrefined sea salt
• 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
• 1 teaspoon nutmeg
• ¼ teaspoon cayenne

Grain Free Chicken Method:

• Chop chicken into 2 inch nuggets
• Using a whisk or fork to mix blanched almond flour and all spices in one bowl
• Beat eggs in another bowl
• Submerge a each chicken nugget in egg wash and then dredge in almond flour spice mixture
• Carefully lay each nugget on a parchment lined baking sheet. Do not crowd
• Bake in oven preheated to 400° for 25 minutes or until golden brown

Active Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 15-20 nuggets

Chef's Note:

*You may also use dark meat but I find breast meat gives you the classic chicken nuggets to perfection.
**If you have extra egg whites around, this is a great place to use them.
