Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets

Servings: 35 chicken nuggets
Preparation Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 pound soy-free ground chicken
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon organic black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut oil
  • 2 soy-free eggs, beaten
  • 1–1 1/2 cups organic white rice flour or brown rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch organic black pepper


In a medium bowl, mix soy-free ground chicken, 1 teaspoon sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon organic parsley, 1/2 teaspoon organic onion powder, and 1/4 teaspoon organic black pepper together. Set aside.

Heat coconut oil in a large skillet to medium heat.

Pour organic rice flour, 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt, and a pinch of black pepper onto a plate. Mix well. Have beaten eggs ready in a small to medium-size bowl.

Roll chicken mixture into 35 ping-pong ball size pieces. Roll each piece of chicken into rice flour, dip into beaten eggs, then again in the flour. Flatten each ball into a nugget shape.

Fry nuggets in coconut oil until golden brown, about 4–5 minutes on each side. Place fried chicken nuggets on a paper towel-lined plate. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
