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
