Intro: Homemade Chicken Nuggets
I have been trying to watch my almost girlish figure. It is quite manly at the moment. But Im going to admit it, sometimes homegirl here needs her fix of fast food. "What was that? These Taco Bell tacos are only 35% beef?..... Good enough for me!" That is typically my motto. Sometimes gravitate to things like Taco Bell and McDees with no shame. (okay, maybe a little shame).
But since giving up in these vices, which still saddens me, I have started whipping up things to replace them... thus the home made nugget came along thanks to my friend Giselle! I just put the meat through my meat grinder, seasoned the hell out of them, shaped them into the fun little nuggies, breaded them in coconut flour and fried 'em up in olive oil lightly to brown, then threw them in the oven for a hearty baking. and VOILA! Nuggets! only these nuggets aren't made with preservatives, synthetic ingredients, flavor enhancers, a variety of plastics, and unused bone fragments from a plethora of random farm animals!
This recipe is a bit of work, but totally worth it (for your gut).
