Paleo Chicken Nuggets

Updated: Mar 29, 2020

A good friend of mine has been making chicken nuggets (tenders for you Canadian folk) for a few years now and I always thought it seemed like quite the endeavor. I was shopping at Vic's Fruit Market a few weeks ago and came across boneless chicken thighs. I don't buy much meat beyond bacon, pork chops and all varieties of ground meat so I thought I would give the boneless chicken thighs a go. And then I decided to make them into chicken nuggets. And guess what? They are obnoxiously easy and very forgiving. You're welcome!

Step 1: Chop up the chicken thighs into pieces that work for you.

Step 2: Dip them into a wet mixture of 2 eggs and 4 T coconut milk (room temperature will work best).

Step 3: Dip them into a dry mixture of basically anything you'd like. My favorites include: 2 T coconut flour, 2 T unsweetened coconut flakes, 1 T almond flour, salt, chili powder, Italian mix. Go wild here! Use what you have on hand.

Step 4: Choose your adventure. You can either bake the nuggets in the oven at 350 F for 30 minutes (or until they are cooked through) or fry them on the stove in coconut oil. I like both ways and usually do half one way and half the other.

Step 5: Smother them in ketchup and Smak Dab mustard.
