Keto Baked Chicken Nuggets
Whether you’re a Mom with fussy kids or you’ve got a picky partner, I understand the frustration with listening to complaints about your cooking.
This Keto baked chicken nuggets recipe is sure to please the pickiest of eaters – especially kids! Not sure your kids will eat keto? Here are our best tips.
Why You Need This In Your Life
It’s 5:30. There’s at least one screaming kid, possibly yours, possibly the neighbor’s, running around the house. The dog is whining, your boss is texting, and you have to get the kids off to practice in an hour.
Oh, yeah, and everyone needs to eat first.
It is so tempting to throw everyone in the car and navigate to the first fast food place you find. Or microwave some kid-friendly packaged food that really isn’t healthy and probably isn’t tasty while you grab some lunch meat for yourself.
There is a better way, I promise. You can do this.
Keto chicken nuggets are the miracle play in this scenario. You need something that’s quick, that kids won’t complain about (OK, no guarantees, but MOST kids like nuggets), and, something that’s Keto.
This recipe satisfies all three.
That’s an amazing thing because ask yourself how many times you’ve cooked two dinners – one for you, and one for any non-Keto folks in your household.
I’m betting it’s more than you realize. So save yourself some time and hassle with these tasty nuggets.
How I Made This Keto
Not all chicken nuggets are created equal, and most aren’t Keto. Heck, sometimes I wonder if some of them even contain food.
The chicken is fine, but the delicious breading on top is probably not Keto. It’s typically made using flour and sometimes deep-fried in inflammatory oils.
These nuggets are baked instead, and I use Keto flours to save you the carbs that would normally be in nuggets.
Almond flour works well. You’ll just dip your chicken chunks in whisked eggs, then coat with the seasoned almond flour.
Make sure you have some Keto Ranch Dressing, Keto ketchup, or Keto BBQ sauce on hand for dipping!
Free Ketogenic Diet Plan
Some of your post-work panics can be avoided with a little planning. I too struggle with preparing food during the week.
It helps to have a plan in place, and even cook some meals ahead of time for convenience.
Consider taking a look at my free ketogenic diet meal plan. It’s got seven whole days of breakfast, lunch, and dinner to take the guesswork out of eating Keto.
It’s a great way to explore new recipes and find out what works for you and your family.
