Let's make the BEST Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets using plantain chips & almond flour to make the crispiest, flavorful exterior!
Let's dive into the story behind my latest obsession; Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets with Plantain Chips.
Ya ever have those days where you have leftover random ingredients and decide you'll try to create something inventive with them?
Well, that happened to me, when I was running low on gluten free breadcrumbs and wanted a quick alternative to make breaded chicken! In the past, I had opted for a rice-cereal, ground, and it worked well. But, this time, I couldn't figure out what to use.
After some thought, I considered using plantain chips, since I knew that people use corn flakes and they could be similar.
I tested out this exact recipe, and decided to take notes throughout the process, in hopes this recipe would exceed my expectations. It so did!! I was wowed and thought, I must share this recipe with the world.
For me, the plantain chips along with almond flour, white rice flour & nutritional yeast truly make these nuggets phenomenal!
How to make gluten free chicken nuggets
Start with creating the "breadcrumb" blend, which includes:
- Plantain chips
- Almond flour
- White rice flour
- Nutritional yeast
- Sea salt
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
Personally, I swear by all Bob's Red Mill ingredients, specifically for the almond flour, white rice flour & nutritional yeast in this recipe! This post is sponsored, but I'd be using these products regardless since they're my go-to and sold at all my local stores.
Once the dry ingredient breadcrumbs are created, you'll want to whisk together the eggs and milk. This mixture will be used to dunk the chicken pieces into before heading into the breadcrumbs.
Assemble the Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets to Bake!
Time to toss the raw chicken cubes, either white meat or dark meat, in the egg mixture.
Then, carefully place one piece of chicken at a time into the crumb mixture and coat all around.
Once chicken nuggets are arranged, drizzle with olive oil before baking!
