It’s Friday, which means we’re watching movies and making these delicious low carb chicken nuggets tonight! I’m starting to think I have a problem because I cannot stop making and eating these (almost) carbless chicken nuggets. They are gluten-free, dairy-free, and have only 1g of carb per nugget! Since I’m currently eating low carb, meals like this make it so much easier. I could not live off asparagus, salami, and cheese sticks…

These chicken nuggets take about five minutes to put together and twenty minutes to bake (or ten if you’re using the air fryer!) They have white meat in the center but are golden and crispy outside with the almond flour coating. 😋 It doesn’t matter how old you are; chicken nuggets are second to best next to pizza. Pizza is always my number one.
The last time I went to Chik-fil-a, I had them give me a ton of their sauce packets. Actually, I heard you could purchase their sauce on Amazon now! I may have to do that. But, dipping the chicken nuggets in the Chik-fil-a sauce has been pure heaven! You could also make these and top them with buffalo, barbeque, or any sauce you like to make a boneless wing style entree!
Speaking of, I’m going make a huge tray of these for the Superbowl with different sauces! They’ll be my boneless wing appetizer for game day. The funny part is I have no idea when/who is playing in the Superbowl. I’m just here for the commercials, the halftimes how, and the food.

I found these cute little food baskets at Hobby Lobby in the picnic section. They’re so fun to use for fries, burgers, hot dogs, and other summer style foods. I place parchment paper down first and then add the food. It also saves on dishes, too! I cannot wait to hear what you think of these carbless chicken nuggets! Make sure to tag me or come back and share your feedback! 😊 Have a wonderful weekend. Everyone!
