2 Eggs, Whisked

4 Medium-Sized Chicken Breast (800g)

1 Cup (112g) Almond Flour (more if needed)

2 Tbsps. (14g) Parmesan Cheese, Grated (Optional)

½ Teaspoon Salt

½ Teaspoon Garlic Powder

¼ Teaspoon Paprika

¼ Teaspoon Ground Pepper

½-1 Cup Oil For Frying


  1. Cut the chicken into small nugget shaped pieces, and add them to a medium-sized bowl. 
  2. Now, mix & combine the spices (salt, garlic, paprika and pepper) together in a small bowl.
  3. Add the spices to the chicken, and stir until all of the pieces of chicken are seasoned with the spices.
  4. Next, whisk the egg in a small bowl until the yolk combines with the white.
  5. Then, add the egg to the chicken, and stir until the chicken is thoroughly coated in the egg mixture.
  6. Now, in a separate medium-sized bowl, combine almond flour and parmesan.
  7. Dip each chicken piece in the flour cheese mixture until covered fully.
  8. Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a pan, and fry the chicken nuggets in batches. Cook the chicken on both sides (about 3 min), until golden and cooked thoroughly in the center.

Air Fryer Instructions:

  1. Preheat air fryer for 5 minutes at 400°F (204°C).
  2. Spray the air fryer basket with non-stick cooking spray and evenly spread out your chicken nuggets in the basket so they lay flat. You may have to cook them in batches.
  3. Cook the chicken nuggets for around 10 to 12 minutes – flipping halfway through.
