Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets Recipe

Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs of boneless chicken
  • 1/2-3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil or avocado oil if you don't like the taste of coconut oil avocado oil is a great alternative. It's flavorless.
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

Instructions

  • Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. (I make mine about 2 inches long and an inch thick.)
  • Mix together the coconut flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and salt.
  • Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan.
  • Coat the chicken pieces with the coconut flour mixture and place them in the frying pan.
  • (I usually fill a gallon-sized plastic zipper bag with the flour mixture, add the chicken pieces and shake. Clean up is easier and my fingersĀ don't get coated with flour this way.)
  • Fry* until golden brown and until the center of the nuggets reaches at least 160 degrees F.
  • Remove from pan and enjoy!
  • *I've also baked these in a 400-degree oven for 25 minutes.Ā  If you don't have time to watch a frying pan or are out of coconut oil, these bake well.
