How to Prepare Paleo Chicken Nuggets

I pre-cooked my chicken and sliced it a few days ago, and used leftovers. I won’t cover in depth how to cook the chicken, but I boiled mine in water. Use a meat thermometer to ensure your meat gets to the safe consuming temperature!

  1. Heat cooking oil/butter in a large deep fry skillet.
  2. Mix Almond Meal, Parmesan, Basil, Garlic Salt, Pepper in a bowl.
  3. Place chicken slices/strips in a ziplock baggie and add egg whites. You want enough to cover the chicken so that the almond meal sticks to each piece.
  4. Drain excessive liquid from chicken baggie and then add dry mixture.
  5. Coat chicken thoroughly with mixture and then add to skillet. ( Watch for oil pops! )
  6. Cook chicken until brown on all sides, then set aside on a towel and cover.

How to Prepare Veggie Pesto Cream Sauce

  1. Heat over medium cooking oil/butter in a sautee pan.
  2. Add mushroom slices, onion ( sliced, diced, you choose ! ), pressed garlic to pan and cook on medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add broccoli and cover for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. While veggies are sautee-steaming, mix 1/4 Cup Almond Meal, 2+ Tbsp Pesto Sauce, 1/4 Cup Milk or Heavy Cream ( if using Heavy Cream, add 1/4 Cup water ) in a bowl.
  5. Add cream sauce and cooked ravioli to pan, coating everything evenly. Heat over low-medium heat for a couple minutes and serve.
