Grain Free Baked Chicken Nuggets

Grain Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Chicken Nuggets, Recipe, Food, Dinner,

I don’t know about you but store bought and fast food chicken nuggets just gross me out. Once you make these I guarantee you will wonder why you weren’t making your own all along. My kids eat them so quickly I barely have enough to freeze for later.

Grain Free Oven Baked Chicken Nuggets


2 Boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into bite size pieces)* 
1 egg
3/4 C Almond Meal (almond flour)
Spices of choice (I add salt, pepper, and garlic seasoning-occasionally some oregano or dry basil if I’m looking for a more Italian spiced nugget) 
3 small/medium bowls
1 cookie sheet 
Parchment paper 
  • Preheat oven 350 degrees 
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside for later use. 
  • Using kitchen scissors prepare chicken if not already done so- cut into bit sized pieces and place in bowl (#1) or place in a large gallon sized freezer ziplock for later use.
  • In a separate bowl (#2) whisk egg 
  • Using bowl #3 add almond meal (flour) and spices until well blended 
  • Line bowls up 1,2,3 and now, it’s time to get a bit messy. Take several chicken bites coat in bowl #2 (egg), and lastly completely coat chicken in flour mixture. 
  • Once coated place on prepared baking sheet and repeat until all chicken is coated. 
  • Baked 30-35 minutes (15 minutes on each side) cooking until juices run clear and cooked completely through. (I cut a few to check them)
  • Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce
