Red Pepper Chicken “Nuggets”

Who doesn’t love chicken nuggets?  I used to frequent McDonalds for their “Chicken Selects” quite frequently.  Unfortunately those chicken selects are filled with all sorts of scary ingredients including: Dimethylpolysiloxane (an anti-foaming agent)… how delicious!  Fortunatelyusing my food processor I was able to make my own dimethylpolysiloxane-free, homemade version of chicken nuggets… and I tossed some red pepper in there just to keep things interesting and flavorful.

Red Pepper Chicken “Nuggets”:

  • 1 large chicken breast
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup almond meal (divided into 2 parts: ¼ cup & ½ cup)
  • ½ red pepper
  • ¼ red onion
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

Combine chicken, egg, ¼ cup almond meal, red pepper, and onion in a food processor until it is well-blended.

Spread ½ cup almond meal onto a large plate

Form chicken mixture into a “nugget” and roll the nugget in the almond meal until the top layer is well coated.  (I made about 12 balls, or “nuggets” in total)

Heat the coconut oil in a pan over medium heat

Add the balls to the pan, turning every few minutes until they are cooked through
