Paleo Chicken Nuggets (with some fresh guacamole)

I have revisited and old – but missed – recipe of mine: Fried Coconut Chicken Nuggets.

What you need:

  • boneless skinless chicken tenders
  • egg whites
  • coconut flour
  • unrefined coconut oil

What you do:

Heat up some coconut oil in a deep enough pan, so that it’s a decent layer. Then I prepared the nuggets by cutting the tenders into small nugget pieces, dipped each in egg white, then rolled in coconut flour. Once the oil was hot enough I set pieces slowly into the pan (kudos to you if you have a deep fryer). I didn’t really time it, but let each side fry for about 7-8 minutes or so (just make sure the fried side is browned enough), and repeat on other side, then remove onto a paper towel covered plate (to soak up excess oils), then serve hot! I quickly made some fresh guacamole (avocado, tomato, lime juice, ground pepper, garlic powder and red chili powder) to dip the pieces.

Verdict (second time around)?

Delicious once again. One of those perfect replacement meals when you feel like having something junky (please don’t take the McD’s route). An awesome grain-free, wheat-free paleo nom session.
