OMG Chicken Nuggets

Colonel Sanders eat your fat clogged heart out! I have used my own “7 Secret Herbs & Spices” (not going to be a secret for much longer is it?) and created my own deliciously healthy version of this KFC classic. I loved this so much I did it with some fish the next day but cooked the fish in the frypan not the oven.

High protein, not deep fried and using no processed cr@p, you are going to love these tasty little morsels! No almond meal? Almond meal is SO easy to make! Raw almonds, in the food processor, blend until they are powder… Magic and MUCH cheaper than the bags at the shop. Just do it.

4 eshallots- chopped in chunks
3 lge chicken breasts, chopped in chunks
1 cup coconut (dessicated or shredded is fine)
1 cup almond meal
2 tsp ground black pepper
1-2 tsp rock salt
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried rosemary
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp dried mint

Preheat your oven to 200C. In your food processor pop herbs, spices, almond meal and coconut and blitz until it is all a rough crumb consistency. Remove and place in a bowl. Now add your chicken and eshallots to the food processor and turn it into mince. Take a spoonful at a time of mince, shape it into “nuggets”, roll in the crumb mixture to coat completely. Place on a wire rack over an oven tray and pop in the oven for 20-30mins or until browned on the outside. Depending on how big or small you made your nuggets will depend on how long they take to cook. Mine seemed to get bigger as I got lazier while making them so mine took a bit longer. You can definitely chuck these in a frypan and cook them that way too. Freeze them, eat them, feed them to your kids.

    Tried these last night but in a ‘meatball’ style rather than a pattie. They were DELICIOUS!!!! Made my own tom sauce from canned tomatoes to go over top. Thanks for this one, def do again.

  2. You brilliant woman Kirsten. Meatballs would be delicious! Thanks for sharing.

    Do you freeze these after they’re cooked and then just reheat them in the oven when they’re needed? Also what sauce do you have with them in the picture. I love you’re food. I’m definitely a fan

  4. Hi Kate, thank you for stopping by the blog! I would probably freeze them raw if you want to reheat them in the oven, if I freeze them cooked I normally eat them cold just chucked in a salad. The sauce in the pic is my Paleo Tomato Relish 😉
