Home-made Chicken Nuggets

27 October 2015

Much better than the store bought nuggets that are full of processed meat and chemicals, these home-made chicken nuggets are my sons favourite. I love that my son gets to enjoy this type of food because I have control over what goes in them, and I know that they are 1000 times healthier than anything store bought. 

These home-made chicken nuggets are a great source of protein for growing little bodies, they are super simple to make too. Make a double batch of these beauties, freeze them and take them out as needed.


  • 500g of chicken breast
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup crushed weet-bix (be sure to use the kids weet-bix) or almond meal for gluten free     
  • 2 tbspn coconut oil


Boil the chicken breast for 20 minutes in water. 

In a blender, blend together cooked chicken breast, egg, salt and garlic powder. 

Pack small balls of the meat mixture into cookie cutters, and then roll in weet-bix crumbs or almond meal.

If you don’t have cookie cutters, make the meat mixture into small balls and roll in bread crumbs.

Heat coconut oil in frying pan on a medium heat.   

Flip halfway through if you want both sides crispy.
