These paleo chicken nuggets are a fantastic nibble food that will satisfy your cravings for typical breaded nuggets.

There is a ton of great dipping sauces that go perfectly with these nuggets. For example, in the picture below I have a paleo friendly ranch dressing but you can also try making a paleo BBQ sauce or ketchup. These all work really well but for me ranch is the best when it comes to chicken.

You can add these nuggets to a salad if you’re looking to add some lovely paleo friendly crunchy bits of chicken. You can also have them with some sides such as sweet potato wedges or simply just on their own. It’s up to you but there is a ton of dishes you can use these in.


These chicken nuggets are pretty good as leftovers so make sure you keep them. Simply store covered in the fridge until you need them, they should last for about 3 days. When you’re hungry you can eat these cold but I recommend heating them in a preheated oven or in the microwave.

If you want to see how these nuggets are done, then be sure to check out the video above. It will take you through all the steps to making this delicious dish.

Cooking Tips:

These can also be oven baked for anyone looking to avoid using too much oil. Simply bake in a preheated oven set to 200°C/395°F.
You can add different seasonings to the almond mix for a different flavour crumbing. Experimenting is the best way to come up with a combo that you enjoy.
If you’re ever worried about undercooking chicken then a meat thermometer always comes in handy. Once the internal temperature passes 75°C/165°F it should be then safe to eat.
