coconut chicken nuggets

Thursday, January 12, 2012

“YUM!”  That will be the unanimous response from the family once you make these tasty chicken nuggets!  We got this gem of a recipe from Health Bent (a new favorite of ours!).  This recipe is super easy, family-friendly (even your pickiest little eater will munch away) and quick to come together.  Pair it with their Curry Mustard Sauce for more yumminess!

We modified the curry mustard sauce to be a little more kid-friendly for our two little nuggets.

1 pound organic ground chicken
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup + 1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup dessicated coconut*
1/2 cup coconut oil
salt & pepper, to taste

1.)  In a bowl, combine 1/4 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup dessicated coconut and salt & pepper.  Mix it with your hands.  In a seperate bowl, combine the ground chicken, 1/2 cup almond flour, onion and garlic powders, egg yolk and salt & pepper.  Mix with your hands until everything has been incorporated.

2.)  In a saute pan, melt the coconut oil on medium heat.

3.)  Take about 2 Tablespoons worth of chicken mixture and in the palm of your hand, roll it in a ball.  Drop it in the almond/coconut mixture and roll around until completely coated.  Repeat with the rest of the chicken.  Place in the saute pan and cook on each side until nice and brown.

Curry Mustard Sauce

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1-2 teaspoons mustard
couple dashes of curry powder

Stir all ingredients together and add more mustard and curry powder as desired.

* Dessicated coconut is dried, finely shredded, unsweetened meat of the coconut.  It's the perfect size to replicate a bread crumb.
