Keto Chicken Nuggets Recipe

If you’re following a keto diet and craving some tasty nuggets, this recipe is for you. These keto chicken nuggets are made with original pork rinds for a crunchy coating and a blend of seasonings to add delicious flavor. They are easy to make and a great option for a low-carb, high-protein meal.

  • 1 pound of raw chicken, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup of crushed original pork rinds
  • 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of granulated garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning

To prepare the chicken nuggets, start by seasoning the raw chicken with the salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, granulated garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. In a separate bowl, mix the mayonnaise and Dijon mustard. Dip each chicken piece into the mayonnaise mixture, coating it well.

In another bowl, combine the crushed pork rinds with the remaining seasonings. Roll each mayo-coated chicken piece in the pork rind mixture, pressing gently to ensure the coating sticks. Place the coated chicken nuggets on a baking rack set on a foil-lined baking pan.

Bake the chicken nuggets in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for about 20 minutes or until they are golden brown and cooked through. Serve them hot with your favorite dipping sauce or enjoy them on their own for a delicious and keto-friendly meal.

Why Choose Pork Rinds?

“Pork rinds make a perfect low-carb alternative to breadcrumbs for coating chicken. They provide a satisfying crunch and a savory flavor that complements the chicken well. Plus, they are naturally low in carbs and high in protein, making them an ideal choice for those following a keto diet.”

Keto Chicken Nuggets Recipe Instructions

Now that you have the ingredients ready, let’s dive into the step-by-step instructions for making these delicious keto chicken nuggets.

1. Start by preparing the raw chicken. Cut it into small, bite-sized pieces, ensuring they are all evenly sized for even cooking. Season the chicken with a mixture of dry seasonings like Pink Himalayan Salt and any other preferred spices.

2. Next, it’s time to create the coating for the chicken nuggets. Crush original pork rinds until they form a fine crumb texture. These pork rinds will not only add a crispy texture but also keep the recipe keto-friendly.

3. In a separate bowl, combine AVocado Oil Mayo and a dash of dijon mustard. This mixture will act as a binding agent and help the pork rind crumbs adhere to the chicken. Dip each seasoned chicken piece into the mayo and mustard mixture, ensuring it is coated on all sides.

4. After coating the chicken with the mayo and mustard mixture, roll each piece in the crushed pork rind crumbs, making sure to cover the entire surface. Once coated, place the chicken nuggets on a baking rack set on top of a foil-lined baking pan. This will allow for even air circulation and result in a crispy exterior.

5. At this point, you have two options for cooking the keto chicken nuggets. You can either fry them in hot oil until they are golden brown and cooked through, or bake them in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for about 15-20 minutes, or until they reach an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).

6. Serve your delicious and keto-friendly chicken nuggets with a flavorful dipping sauce. Classic options like Ranch Dressing or Sriracha Sauce pair wonderfully with the savory flavors of the nuggets. Enjoy!
