Do you ever have a mad craving for chicken nuggets, while pursing Paleo? I DO! This recipe from PaleOMG totally gives you your fix! Great texture and taste! The dipping sauce is pretty tasty too.

I like this recipe because it uses coconut flour, as compared to many that require almond meal (which is seriously going up in price). I got my coconut flour at The Good Earth, which is a local health food store chain. It was a while ago, so I can’t quote the price.

Try this out and ENJOY!!!

P.S. My kids LOVE this things too!

Ingredients

For the nuggets

  • 1lb ground chicken or ground turkey
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 bundle of cilantro, chopped (the more, the better!)
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil (I used olive oil)
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil

For the dipping sauce

  • 1/4 cup Coconut Aminos (I used Tamari)
  • 1/8 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon ground stone mustard (from the bottle/container-not powder)
  • 1 teaspoon Raw Honey

Instructions

  1. Mix all of your nugget ingredients together: ground chicken, egg, cilantro, scallions, sesame oil, ginger, and salt and pepper.
  2. Now heat up a large skillet under medium heat and add 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil.
  3. Place your coconut flour in a shallow bowl.
  4. Make small balls from your nugget mixture, “nugget sized” and place each nugget in the coconut flour (being sure to only lightly dust the nuggets) then place in your skillet.
  5. Use a spatula to slightly flatten out each nugget. It only needs just a little press down.
  6. Cook on both sides for 5-7 minutes or until cooked through.
  7. While your nuggets cook, mix your dipping sauce ingredients together.
  8. Once your nuggets are done cooking, dip those little guys in the sauce and eat those grown up nuggets up!
