Recipe Review: Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets Take 4!

If you read this blog regularly, you probably know I am on a quest to find the perfect gluten free chicken nugget.  Little A is obsessed with what he calls "nuggies" and momma is definitely not obsessed with feeding him the fast food ones.  The recipe for these was found on wholenewmom.com and is a great, simple recipe for chicken nuggets.


I made these following the recipe exactly (but omitting the cayenne since they were intended for a little guys taste buds.)  They turned out really well and received the "Little A Seal of Approval!"  Having made them once now though I have a few changes planned for next time.

1. Increase the black pepper a bit to account for the lack of cayenne so they have a bit more flavor.

2. Decrease the coconut oil to 1/8c instead of 1/4 because they were a bit oily for my taste.

3.  After I coated the chicken pieces in the flour mixture I poured the oil over the chicken while still in the bowl as the directions stated.  As I began moving the chicken pieces from the bowl to the the baking sheet, the oil began to harden making the pieces very difficult to move to the sheet. Next time I will coat the chicken pieces in the flour mixture and then place them in a foil lined 9x13 dish then pour the coconut oil over them and toss to mix. 

Other than these few minor changes these were great.  So good in fact that Little A believed they were from the "Chicken Nugget Store," otherwise known as the place we go when momma is too tired to cook and the bane of many a mother's existence the golden arches!  I figure, any recipe that my son believes is from McD without me actually having to go there is a winner!!

Happy Eating! :)
