Clean Chicken Nuggets

If your kiddos are anything like mine, then they love chicken nuggets! However, I don’t want to feed them versions from the store or fast food that is filled with crapola!

I came up with this recipe and would love it if you tried it for your family as well!



  • 2 – 12 oz packages organic ground chicken (I find this near the frozen breakfast sausage)

  • 1 c. flour of choice (I use cassava flour, a gluten-free blend or this almond flour)

  • egg

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 T grass-fed butter (per batch)


Melt 2 T. butter in a large skillet over medium to high heat. Combine the chicken, flour, egg and salt in a bowl. Use a small ice cream scoop to put nugget sized portions of  the chicken mixture into the skillet. Cook for approximately 7 minutes on each side. You will likely have to cook these in 2-3 batches depending on the size of your skillet. Add 2 T. butter to the skillet for each new batch.
