Recipe Collection: Chicken Nuggets

admin May 26, 2011

This is the one and only thing I have put into my freezer…about 3 lbs. of chicken nuggets.  At least there’s that, right?  Though I’d better get moving on the rest….  But today I’ll share the recipe for this one.


  • 1 lb. of chicken
  • 1 c. sprouted flour or almond flour
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. ground mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c. cream or buttermilk

In a medium bowl, combine flour and spices.  In another, egg and cream (well-beaten).  Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces.  Dip them into the flour mix, then the egg mix, then back into the flour mix.  At this point, you can place them on a cookie sheet in a single layer and freeze them (transfer to a bag after they’re completely frozen), or fry them in lard, beef tallow, or coconut oil.  Frying takes 3 – 4 minutes per side when thawed; a bit longer when frozen.  Watch them carefully because they do go quickly.

Makes 15 – 20 chicken nuggets.

  1. Have you ever baked them in the oven instead of frying? Do you think that would work? I like being able to take something from the freezer, pop it in the oven and be able to clean and do other prep while it is cooking.


  2. I can't WAIT to give these a try – my 2yo DD will only eat chicken nuggets, and she's getting pretty good at spotting my shoddy nugget attempts 🙂
    Thanks for the recipe!


  3. Rebecca,

    I haven't baked this recipe, but I have baked other fried chicken before. If you poured some melted butter or lard over them and then baked them, it should work. It won't taste good without some sort of fat, though.


  4. Do you think you could bake them after spraying with Olive oil?
