Coconut Chicken Nuggets

1 Lb Ground Chicken
1 Egg Yolk
1 tsp Onion Powder
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 C + 1/2 C Almond Flour
1/2 C Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
1/2 C Coconut Oil
Salt & Pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a bowl combine ¼ cup almond flour, ½ cup coconut and salt & pepper.  Mix to combine.

In a separate bowl, combine the ground chicken, ½ cup almond flour, onion powder, garlic powder, egg yolk and salt & pepper.  Mix well until everything is incorporated.

In a sauté pan, melt coconut oil on medium heat.  Take about 2 tablespoons worth of the chicken mixture and roll into a ball and then coat with the coconut and almond mixture.  Repeat with the remaining chicken.  You should make about 15 to 18 chicken nugget/balls.

In small batches place nuggets into heated coconut oil and cook on each side for about 3 to 4 minutes.  Transfer balls to a parchment lined bake pan and place in oven for 4 to 5 minutes to allow the chicken to cook through.  Repeat with the remaining chicken nuggets.
