  • Press slightly flat and add to pan
  1. Cook small batches for 3 to 4 minutes per side (don’t crowd the pan)
  2. Transfer nuggets to parchment lined bake pan
  3. Place in oven for 4 to 5 minutes to allow the chicken to cook through, as you fry the next batch.

Serve with Paleo “BBQ” Sauce

Saving Leftovers

Keep in fridge for a few days, but will loose the crunch.

Modifications

Eliminate coconut and replace with coarse almond flour.

Verdict

Not yet made with coconut. Can’t seem to make a recipe as printed, even the first time. :)
