My go to snack or lunch lately has been these protein packed chicken nuggets! I keep them gluten free by using crushed up cheese crisps as the “breading,” but you can use any crushed up chip, cracker or even regular breadcrumbs! I’ve seen @shutthekaleup do something similar with crushed up plantain chips and it looks FIRE 🔥 Keep this recipe handy for any time you’re craving nugs!
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken tenders, cut into bite sized pieces
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1 bag Whisps or any cracker or chip crushed (I use the bottom of a glass to crush them while they’re still in the bag)
- Avocado oil
- Ketchup or ranch to dip!
Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
Coat your chicken nuggets in the egg wash then “breading” one piece at a time. Set aside once coated.
Add a generous drizzle of oil to coat your pan and add the chicken nuggets once the pan and oil are hot.
Cook for about 3-4 minutes each side or until chicken is cooked through and crispy. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan and do 2 batches if needed. This ensures they get super crispy!
Dip in your sauce of choice and enjoy!
