 1 egg
 ½ cup blanched, finely ground almond flour

Keto Chicken Nuggets Ground Chicken. Children occasionally seem to view chicken nuggets as a separate food category. Regardless of whether they are fried or baked, the flour coating typically has too many carbohydrates to be comfortably accommodated by a ketogenic diet.

The nuggets have a fantastic crunch that rivals that of conventional nuggets thanks to their coating of pork rinds and almond flour.

What ingredients are required to prepare chicken nuggets in the keto diet?

Because chicken thighs are fattier and more tasty than chicken breasts, I like to use them when making ground chicken.

On sometimes, it appears that kids classify chicken nuggets under a different food group.

The covering of pork rinds and almond flour gives the nuggets a great crunch that rivals that of traditional nuggets.

What components are needed to make chicken nuggets while following a ketogenic diet?

I prefer to use chicken thighs when producing ground chicken because they are fattier and tastier than chicken breasts.

Cheddar cheese that has been freshly shredded from the block is always preferred if you have the time to do so. It doesn’t include fillers, and I believe it tastes better.

Almond Flour: Blue Diamond blanched, finely ground almond flour is what I prefer to use.
One large egg is required for this dish.

Pig Rinds: Since the pork rinds are a component of the breading, you should crush them to a very fine powder. Simply place them in your food processor, and it will do the rest!
