My husband discovered this recipe for paleo friendly chicken nuggets on the Ultimate Paleo Guide, and he’s cooked it several times now. I’ve been meaning to take photos every time he cooks them to share on my blog, but we end up eating them as soon as their cooked – they are that good! But we held restraint so I could take a pic and share them with you.
The recipe calls for almond flour, which is very expensive in the health food shops, so instead, we use ground almonds, which according to the man on the market stall that hubs bought arrowroot powder from (another ingredient) is pretty much the same thing – it just gives a crunchier texture.
He has cooked the chicken nuggets in both coconut oil and ghee. I prefer them cooked in coconut oil, he prefers them cooked in ghee and the boy isn’t fussy either way!
We serve them with salad and some oven baked sweet potato fries, and of course the honey mustard dip. To make the dip, the original says to use paleo-friendly mayonnaise. I’m pretty sure we’re not going to find a product like that in the UK, so we just use organic mayo. I do keep meaning to make mayonnaise from scratch, but ah well, one thing at a time! I make the dip to taste, adding a bit more mustard or honey as desired.
As well as being paleo friendly chicken nuggets, they are also gluten free.
