Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets

You can make this recipe egg-free by following instructions in the recipe
This can be rice free by using a non-rice flour like wild rice (not the rice family), quinoa flour, etc.
This recipe can be SCD by using nut flour instead of a grain flour

2 cups chicken (most use boneless, skinless, but you can use dark meat or turkey as well)
1 Egg, beaten (If egg intolerant use melted ghee or CF milk)
2 cups GF flour or other breading* (rice flour or other GF flour)
Season as desired (salt, pepper, garlic or onion powder)
Coconut oil for frying (Coconut oil is great for frying; however, for those sensitive to coconut, any oil will do)

Slice chicken into bite-size piece (slicing them thin enough)
Dip in egg or ghee or milk
Dredge with flour or breading mix

Fry  in 1/2 inch of hot until brown on all sides.  Place on paper towel (non-chlorine bleached) to drain excess oil.


* For a crunchier breading, blend GF crackers or cereal in food processor or blender.
