Paleo Chicken Nuggets are one of my weekly go to meals. They are simple, delicious, nutritious and completely support a Paleo based eating plan. Now I am not a strict Paleo advocate, but some of the paleo inspired recipes are just really damn tasty - like these. 

These Chicken Nuggets are packed with awesome protein, healthy fats, low carbs and just taste INSANELY Good. These are based on recipe I got from Diana  Keuilian. You can watch me make them in the video below and after than I have the recipe details and cooking instructions. 

  • Preparation Time: 5-10 mins
  • Cooking Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins

Ingredients (Serves 4):

  • ½ cup raw almonds
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • Dash of black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 egg
  • 1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1 inch cubes


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Cover a baking sheet with parchment / greaseproof paper.
  3. Blend the raw almonds in a food processor (I use a Magic Bullet) until fine. (If you have an allergy to almonds, use sun flower seeds or gluten free oats - though that won't be paleo)
  4. Combine the ground almonds, salt, pepper and paprika in a shallow bowl.
  5. Whisk the egg in another shallow bowl.
  6. Dip the chicken pieces in the egg mixture, and then coat in the almond mixture.
  7. Place on the prepared pan and bake for 15-20 minutes.
