Ingredients in Keto Chicken Nuggets
How to make the best Keto Chicken Nuggets
STEP 1: Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add the coconut flour to a shallow bowl. Combine the almond flour, parmesan cheese, onion powder and garlic powder in a separate shallow bowl. Mix until well incorporated.
STEP 2: Add the heavy cream, egg, and paprika to a third shallow bowl, and fork whisk to combine. Heat about an inch of oil in a high-sided skillet or dutch oven over medium-high heat.
STEP 3: Coat the chicken pieces in the coconut flour, dredge in the egg wash, and then coat in the breading.
STEP 4: Gently place the breaded nuggets into the hot oil and fry until cooked all the way through and crispy on both sides, about 2 minutes each side. Try not to flip the nuggets too many times or the breading will fall off. Line a plate with paper towels and as you remove the nuggets from the pan, place them on the paper towels to absorb any excess grease.
