Paleo Oven Baked Chicken Nuggets

paleo chicken nuggets


I am so done with sugar.  Seriously, I can’t even think about eating anything sweeter than a lemon at this point.  Good thing I’ve wrapped up the recipes for my dessert e-book and can concentrate on finally whittling these last pounds off and getting healthier.   So in that vein, here is a super simple paleo chicken nugget recipe that is sugar-free and low carb.

I tried to take more photos of these nuggets but my son and husband destroyed them.  Literally 10 minutes after they were out of the oven they were eaten.

These bake up nice and crispy just like a traditional chicken nugget.    They also reheat really well if you manage to have leftovers.  Just put them in the oven on 250 for 10 minutes or so.

If you don’t want to use pork rinds you can also try using crumbled sweet potato or cassava chips for the final breading.  I hope you like them as much as we do!

    these look great. this may be a silly question but where do you get good quality pork rinds? I live on the OR coast and don’t have access to any stores other than Fred Meyer or Costco. Can I order them online?

    My husband and I liked these very much, although I think I will brine the chicken next time so they can cook a little longer and crisp up just a bit more.
