Parmesan Chicken Nuggets

I’d been craving chicken nuggets for a while and googled for low carb chicken nugget inspiration. I discovered that popular crumbing of choice was crumbed pork rinds (I don’t eat pork) and parmesan.

I read a couple of recipes and decided to keep it simple by whisking together a batter of parmesan and eggs for dipping my chicken nuggets into.

My chicken piece of choice for nuggets is the thigh. I find that thighs results in juicy, flavourful nuggets, way more so than lean chicken breasts do.

As for dipping sauce, I like to smother my chicken nuggets in sour cream. Feel free to enjoy your low carb dipping sauce of choice – tomato sauce and even smashed avocado would be delicious!
