Chicken Nuggets Keto Recipe:
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- Cooking oil (such as avocado oil or coconut oil), for frying
- In a shallow bowl or plate, combine the almond flour, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create the breading mixture.
- Dip each piece of chicken into the beaten eggs, making sure to coat it completely.
- Roll the chicken in the breading mixture, pressing gently to adhere the mixture to the chicken and create a crispy coating. Repeat the process for all the chicken pieces.
- Heat cooking oil in a skillet or frying pan over medium heat. The oil should be enough to cover the bottom of the pan.
- Once the oil is hot, carefully add the breaded chicken nuggets to the pan. Cook them in batches, ensuring they have enough space between them.
- Cook the chicken nuggets for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown and cooked through. The cooking time may vary depending on the size of the nuggets.
- Once cooked, transfer the chicken nuggets to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
- Serve the chicken nuggets hot with your favorite keto-friendly dipping sauce or alongside a fresh salad.
