This copycat recipe for low carb chick fil a nuggets is fantastic!
On my Christine Is Cooking website, I have a very popular recipe for Copycat Chick Fil A nuggets and sauce: http://www.christineiscooking.com/2011/08/copycat-recipe-chick-fil-chicken.html
Recently, I converted the same recipe into a low carb version. These are as good as the original!
The nuggets have less that an half gram of net carbs in each nugget (approx .48 grams per nugget).
1 cup almond flour (contains 12 g. net carbs)
(2) Cut your chicken breast into small square-ish nugget chunks (I got about 25 nugget chunks for each chicken breast).
This recipe makes about 75 nuggets. That may sound like a lot, but they are quite small (you get 75 nuggets from 3 chicken breasts). The nuggets keep great in the fridge (I even like them cold). You can also freeze them and crisp them back up in the oven or toaster oven.
(1) Cooking time can vary given the size and temperature of your chicken and oil. Cook a test batch of 1 or 2 nuggets to find the correct cooking time. For safety, the correct temperature of cooked chicken is 165 degrees.
(2) I have read that the restaurant cooks their nuggets with a pressure cooker. Most people don’t own a pressure cooker, but a deep fryer is a close second for a similar taste and texture. This is the deep fryer I own and recommend
