  • 4 ground chicken breasts
  • Celtic sea salt to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder 
  • 4 pressed cloves of fresh garlic 
  • Two eggs beaten 
  • Organic chickpea flour
  • Grape seed oil 


Preparing the meat

  • Mix the chicken ground with the salt, the onion powder, and the garlic.
  • Make a 1 inch flat layer of meat in a square baking dish (press the chicken and compact the layer with your hands).
  • Bake at 350F or 180C  for 15 minutes.

Take the cooked meat layer out of the oven and cut nugget shapes with a cookie cutter or cut in little square shapes with a knife (to avoid wasting trimmings). 

Bread the nuggets


Dip the meat in the egg and dust it in chickpea flour.


Heat some grape seed oil in a pan and brown the nuggets in low heat until crispy.
