Homemade Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets

Homemade Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets


I usually make extra because they are so good as leftovers too. Warm or cold. And perfect for kiddo lunches too.


  • 2 lbs chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces

  • 1 cup gluten free flour blend (in one bowl)

  • 4 eggs (in 2nd bowl)

Dry mixture (3rd bowl):

  • 1 cup gluten free bread crumbs

  • 1 cup almond flour

  • 1 tbsp paprika

  • 1 tbsp salt

  • 1 tbsp onion powder

  • 1 tbsp garlic powder


  • 1/2-1 cup of avocado or coconut oil


Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and set in a large bowl.

Preheat oven to 400. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Create a breading station.
1-gluten free flour
2-eggs, whisked
3-dry mixture

Add each piece of chicken to flour, then eggs (allow excess to drip off), then dry ingredients, & onto the baking sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes.

Heat a large griddle to 350 degrees with avocado oil.

Place the chicken on griddle and let cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side until it's a nice golden brown.

Store in glass container in the fridge. Tastes great leftover so make extra!
