Cook Time
  • 1 pound chicken breast
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 tsp Pinch salt
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  1. Cut your chicken breast into 1 inch thick and 2 inches long pieces. While the pieces do not have to be perfect, they should be all relatively the same size so they cook evenly. One pound of chicken should give you about 30 nuggets.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and heavy cream.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cheese, salt and seasoning.
  4. Dip the chicken into the egg mix and then into the almond flour mix, coating the chicken completely in the almond flour mix. Set the dipped chicken onto a clean sheet tray or plate while you dip all of the nuggets.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the nuggets for 3 minutes, flip and fry for another 3 minutes. You may need to cook the chicken in batches depending on how large your pan is. You can also use an air fryer to cook the nuggets, cooking them at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Enjoy the nuggets while hot or let them cool, place them in a zippered bag and freeze for up to a month.
