Chicken nuggets. A staple for American comfort food and a ubiquitous fast food offering. Unfortunately, chicken nuggets are often made from low-quality chicken covered in refined flour and fried in oxidized vegetable and seed oils. This certainly does not amount to a recipe for long-term health, or short-term digestive comfort!
But what if there was a way to make a delicious and nourishing version of chicken nuggets that can promote health AND happiness? Well there is! By swapping out the refined flour for almond meal and baking them in the oven instead of frying, these chicken “bites” are a healthy alternative to nuggets! They taste better than any nugget you’ve ever had and leave you feeling full and energized instead of bloated and groggy.
