  • 1 lb. ground chicken (dark meat, a little fat makes them moister)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup coconut flour
  • 2 tsp. Frank’s RedHot (original) red hot sauce
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

  • In a medium bowl add ground chicken, egg, coconut flour, Frank’s RedHot Sauce, sea salt, onion powder, garlic powder and mix well until until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  • Make chicken mixture into several 1″ size meatballs and then flatten to resemble a nugget.
  • In a separate bowl add arrowroot flour and sea salt, mix well.
  • Dredge each meatball into the arrowroot mixture, shake off excess coating.
  • Set aside.
  • In a large skillet melt coconut oil over medium high heat.  Add chicken nuggets to skillet and cook 2 – 3min each side until golden brown.
