The Best Chicken Nuggets Ever

One of Munchkin's favorite foods is the almighty chicken nugget.  Oh how he loves chicken nuggets.  I've tried several at home versions of chicken nuggets and each one received lukewarm reviews.  But when I saw this one over on Health-Bent that uses ground chicken (genius!) I thought I might have a winner. 

Saying that Munchkin loved them is an understatement.  After one bite, Munchkin requested I feed him (his words) these best chicken nuggets and 'that good meatloaf' for dinner from now on.  Even Hubbers (who is not typically the biggest chicken nugget fan) loved them.  I made a few tweaks to the original recipe based on Munchkin's tastes and what I had on hand.  And the best part (in my opinion) is that they're wheat free and I know exactly what's in them :)

Here's what I used in our nuggets:

Nugget Mixture
1 pound ground chicken
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup almond flour

1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup grated parmesan

olive oil & butter for frying - I used a 50/50 ratio, enough to coat the bottom of the pan

Check out Health-Bent for the how to method - I followed it exactly

Note on the cooking time - I found it took about 4 minutes of cook time per side.
