My paleo chicken nuggets always go down a real storm, and are super popular whenever I post pics on Instagram, so I thought it high time to write up the recipe. I think you’ll agree that they are too easy to make. When real food is so good and so effortless, who needs the junk version?
Ingredients (for 15-20 paleo chicken nuggets)
4 boneless and skinless chicken thighs
An egg yolk
The end of a lemon
50g ground almonds or coconut flour, both work just as well
50ml (ish) of good quality cooking oil, I use coconut
Step One: chop your chicken into small bite sized
pieces and place in a bowl.
Step Two: squeeze the lemon juice over the chicken pieces,
then coat in the egg yolk. Put your almonds or coconut
flour into a separate bowl.
Step Three: mix the lemony egg into the chicken
so each piece is covered.
Step Four: dip each piece of chicken into the almonds
or coconut flour, until all sides are coated.
Step Five: repeat until every single piece of chicken
is covered in crumbs.
Step Six: heat your oil over a high heat, and
start placing your chicken into the pan one by one
*it’s really important to ensure the oil is hot enough!
Step Seven: shallow fry your chicken pieces until
they are golden brown, then turn them
over the other side until they are thoroughly cooked.
Drain the excess oil on kitchen towel and serve.
