Paleo Chicken Nuggets

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.

  1. They’re so yummy hon, using the thigh instead of breast creates such a good flavour and the coconut on the outside is a good addition… I had a feeling you’d like them xx

  2. Oh love this so much, thanks for sharing, will be making these low carb lovelies for myself and the family soon! Thanks for linking up to #tastytuesdays x

  3. Homemade chicken nuggets are simply delicious! We always have them at my mum’s and the kids love making them with their nan. xx

  4. Ooo yum! I haven’t made chicken nuggets for ages and it is well over due! I always end up buying a whole chicken these days and can’t be bothered with pulling it apart before it is cooked…so everything we eat generally revolves around using cooked chicken. But I do crave a good chicken nugget!
