Homemade Chicken Nugget Recipe

Round light brown nuggets sitting on a black plate piled on top of one another and a small muffin pan filled with more nuggets in the background

Another fun recipe I found on the interwebs.  TBH, I have never been a huge chicken nugget fan but then saw this low carb version and figured I could change the spice mixture to my tastes.  And I do love different snacks to try…

This version is the basic version of the nuggets which is very close to the recipe I discovered.  When I make these again, there will be more spices and I will use home-cooked minced chicken rather than the canned.  I don’t have a problem with canned chicken, but it can have its own taste. Your seasoning needs to be strong enough to counter those canned flavors.

Try it and let me know what you think.  I’ll be posting this in the Tracey & Mike Facebook Group and would love you to join us and tell me how you customized this for you and your family!
