Paleo, Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Chicken Nuggets

These delicious, homemade chicken nuggets got gobbled up by my family! They are Paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free. Try them and let me know what you think in the comments below.


1.5lbs boneless chicken breasts thinly sliced into nuggets (or tenders if you prefer)

1/4 cup tapioca flour

1 cup blanched almond flour

2 eggs beaten

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

olive oil to cook


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix the salt and pepper into your beaten eggs in a shallow bowl. Place the tapioca flour and the almond flour in two separate shallow bowls or plates. Dip each slice of chicken (both sides) first in the tapioca flour then the egg mixture and then coat with the almond flour before browning in the olive oil. You only need to coat the bottom of your pan about 1/4 inch with the oil.

On medium heat, cook the nuggets for a couple of minutes then flip over and cook another minute or two. Should be light orange in color. Transfer to a baking tray lined with parchment paper or foil. Once you have all the nuggets browned, bake in the oven for 8 – 10 minutes. Let cool about a minute and serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy!
