Chicken Nuggets (scd, paleo)

Is it just me, or do these little chicken nuggets look like some from a certain restaurant that happens to be called Chick-fil-a? That fact alone should be enough to motivate anyone to make these. Plus it's really easy. Here we go:

coconut oil, for frying
3 or 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 egg whites
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 tsp white pepper
1 tsp garlic powder

Take the chicken breasts and cut off all the nasties, then cut into bite size chunks.
Take the 2 egg whites and put in bowl.
Use about 1/4 cup coconut flour, mix in a dash of white pepper, and garlic powder
Dip the chicken pieces into the egg, then into the coconut flour. Only lightly "bread" them, you don't need much, just enough to make them look ghostly.

Have a frying pan bottom covered in coconut oil.

Place the chicken pieces into the hot oil. Fry on each side for about 4 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.



  1. I am a newbie to the SCD diet, just started about 3 weeks ago (minus some holiday indulgences!) I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE your blog! I enjoy reading your recipes and tidbits of helpful info:) I have had Crohn's disease for 14 years now and have only recently heard about the SCD diet. I cannot believe how much better I feel already and I just had to say how DELICIOUS these nuggets are! I like them better than any commercially prepared nuggets for sure, so thank you so much for your passion, your talent, and for sharing it with the rest of us!

    1. Jodi,
      Congratulations on having the motivation to start scd! I wish you much success! Thank you for your kind words, you have no idea how much they mean to me. I'm so glad the recipe worked out for you, I hope you can pass the info on to anyone else who may benefit from it. Wishing you good health!
