Almond Chicken Nuggets


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika can use regular paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line a baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil (helps prevent sticking and makes for easy cleanup). Spray foil with nonstick spray.
  3. Trim chicken and cut into small, bite-size pieces.
  4. Combine almond meal with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika.
  5. Toss chicken pieces with seasoned almond meal.
  6. Place chicken pieces onto cookie sheet, making sure they're not touching.
  7. Cook for 10-12 minutes. If your pieces are cut larger, you may need a few more minutes - just make sure to cook until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165 degrees.
