Kid Friendly Chicken Nuggets

Forget those frozen, unhealthy, processed chicken nuggets.  Make them yourself - but in a healthy way. I typically double this recipe so that one batch can be frozen for a quick snack or fast meal.

Thank you to for this awesome nugget recipe. 

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/4 cup flour (almond flour or whole grain gluten-free)
3/4 tsp salt (I use Celtic or Himalayan Salt)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp cayenne (optional)
1/8 tsp black pepper
coconut oil, melted

1. Cut chicken into small chunks, about 1 – 1 1/2 inch chunks.  Place in bowl.
2.  Mix flour with seasonings.
3.  Sprinkle flour and seasoning mixture over chicken and mix well to coat thoroughly.
4.  Melt coconut oil.  Drizzle over chicken and mix to coat lightly.
5.  Bake in preheated oven 450 for conventional until chicken’s internal temperature reaches 180 degrees

Hints and Notes:

1.  The smaller you cut the chicken, the faster it will bake.  Don’t cut them so small that you have crispy bitty pieces of chicken, but not as big as commercial nuggets.

2.  For even faster meal prep, cut up chicken into chunks, coat and store in small plastic bags in the freezer.  Just take out of the freezer and bake in the oven for a ready-in-a-flash meal!  The chunks will only take about 5 minutes longer to cook.
