Maybe it’s because you remember from childhood getting to eat foods like french fries, chicken nuggets, or other convenience items that you wouldn’t dream of eating yourself now that you’re an adult and know that traditional fast food is processed and unhealthy, or at the very least overly salty and loaded with fat. If you and your family would love the convenience of fast food without all the unhealthy extras, you’ll love these two recipes!

Almond Crusted Chicken Nuggets

Serves 4 – 6

Ingredients:

2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 cup of almond flour

1 tablespoon of organic adobo seasoning

1 teaspoon of salt

dash of cayenne pepper

2 large organic eggs

2 tablespoons grapeseed oil

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Directions:

Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Slice into medium bite-sized chunks.

In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, adobo seasoning, cayenne pepper and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs. Place a handful of chicken bites into the egg, then coat with the almond flour mixture.

Heat the oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the chicken nuggets in the oil for 4 to 6 minutes per side, until golden brown.
