Recipe: Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets

These Crispy Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Chicken Nuggets are kid approved! My kids are the biggest food critics I have ever met, and if you can win their hearts in the kitchen you feel as though you won an Olympic Gold Metal! With this meal I won.

There fairly simple to make too and great for school lunches, so make extra!!



2.5lbs Cut up Chicken Breast or Chicken Tenders
1 Cup Almond Flour/Meal
Salt, Pepper and  Braggs  Sprinkle 24 Herbs*
3 Eggs, whisked and set aside
Coconut Oil for pan frying

*I have never been one to measure-  just add enough that looks good – 2T should be good.  If you don’t have the Braggs, use any italian seasonings 🙂



The Method:

Over medium high heat, melt coconut oil in pan.  You want enough to fill that pan about 1/4″.

Mix dry ingredients except salt and pepper together in a bowl.

Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken. Dip chicken in egg then dry mixture.  Cook chicken until golden brown on both sides until cooked all the way through – if oil gets to hot turn down temperature to medium.

Place chicken on plate with paper towel to absorb extra oil.
