Grain Free Chicken Nuggets

Grain free chicken nuggets?  Is it even possible?  And if it is possible, it’s gotta taste horrible, right?

I’m so happy these turned out as good as they did.  My pickiest eater happily gobbled them down and declared them better than McDonald’s, which is a lot coming from him.

Grain Free Chicken Nuggets

  • 2 lbs chicken thighs, bones removed and cut into nugget sized pieces (pastured chickens of course)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour (available here Green Polka Dot Box)
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 egg, beaten (from pastured hens)
  • 1/4 cup palm oil, lard (from pastured pigs) or coconut oil (available here Green Polka Dot Box)
Heat oil in a cast iron skillet.  While oil is heating, toss chicken and egg together, coating well.  In a large bowl, mix coconut flour, paprika, salt and pepper.  Toss chicken in and coat well.  I like to use a tongs to really mix it up.  Place chicken pieces in oil, separating them, and brown well on both sides.  If you have a deep fryer, that would work well too.
