  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp olive oil You could also use avocado oil, or melted coconut oil
  • 2 cup almond flour You can also use ground almonds
  • 1 tbsp Onion powder
  • 1 tbsp Garlic powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 250 g skinless chicken breast, or diced chicken


  • Grease a skillet or frying pan, and put on a low to medium heat
  • Crack an egg in a bowl, with the 3 tbsp of oil and whisk together.
  • Measure the dry ingredients into another bowl, and mix together.
  • If using chicken breast, dice the breast into nugget sized pieces.
  • Dip the chicken into the egg mix and then thoroughly coat it with the almond flour mix. You can either dip it into the almond flour mix, but I find it best to use another plate, transfer some almond flour onto it to thoroughly coat both sides. This avoids the almond flour mix becoming eggy and clumping together.
  • Place the nuggets into the skillet/frying pan to cook until golden brown. You'll need about 5 minutes on each side to cook them but make sure they're cooked through before eating.
