You'll never miss Chicken McNuggets after you eat these!

  • 1/4 c. almond flour, organic
  • 1/2 c. coconut, unsweetened, shredded, organic
  • sea salt, unrefined, & fresh ground pepper, organic to taste
  • 1 lbs. chicken, ground, free-range, organic
  • 1 egg, yolk, free-range or cage free, organic
  • 1/2 c. almond flour, organic
  • 1 tsp. onion powder, organic
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, organic
  • 1 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

In a bowl combine 1/4 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup shredded coconut, sea salt, and pepper. Mix to combine.

In a separate bowl, combine the ground chicken, egg yolk, 1/2 cup almond flour, onion powder, garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper. Mix well (using your hands works best). In a sauté pan, melt coconut oil on medium heat. Take about 1 heaping tablespoon worth of the chicken mixture and roll into a ball (more if you want them to be larger) and then coat with the coconut and almond mixture. Repeat until you have made all the chicken mixture into nuggets/balls.

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