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!
Paleo Oven Baked Chicken Nuggets
In a medium bowl place your cut up chicken pieces and then add in your salt, pepper, onion powder and coconut flour and mix thoroughly.
In a separate bowl crack your egg and mix in the water to make an egg wash.
On a small plate place your crushed pork rinds.
Take one chicken nugget and quickly dip it egg wash then roll it in pork rind crumbs.
Place on your greased baking sheet and repeat.
Bake in your oven for 20 minutes at 365 degrees
