I know it can be tough to get kids to eat healthy food. I have worked hard before on a new healthy recipe and then my kids didn’t really like it. That was disheartening!
I thought of a solution to this problem-make chicken nuggets! I don’t know a kid who doesn’t like chicken nuggets. And most adults usually love them too. 🙂 Chicken nuggets usually have a good amount of fat, but that is a great thing. You can read my thoughts on healthy fats in this post-I even include my lab results from my doctor!
Healthy Chicken Nugget Recipes
I have rounded up some chicken nugget recipes that are either paleo, gluten free, or just real food.
Some of these recipes are for “chicken strips”. You can either make them as is (most kids like chicken strips as well :)) or cut them smaller and make them nuggets.
Also, most of these are very easy!! I absolutely love recipes that are kid friendly and easy.
Paleo Chicken Nuggets/Strips Recipes
Gluten Free Chicken Nugget Recipes
Real Food Chicken Nugget Recipes
Note: All of these recipes can be made with Einkorn flour. Einkorn is wheat flour, but is an ancient grain that is lower in gluten than other wheat flours. This makes it healthier and is digested much easier for those who struggle with digestion problems or allergies.
