No need to run out to your favorite fast food joint for that nugget fix. These are super simple to make at home and 100% Keto. For this batch, I used ground Turkey. It was very lean meat but came out extremely moist. You will not be disappointed. I made them huge but you can make them whatever size you want. Just remember that the cooking time will vary depending on how big you make them.
- 2 lbs ground turkey or chicken
- 5 eggs
- 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 5 tbs almond flour
- 1/2 bag Kroger plain/spicy pork rinds
- Seasonings of choice
Add your pork rinds to the blender and blend for ~10 seconds. Remove lid, add your almond flour and 1/2 cup grated parmesan. Put lid back on and blend again for ~10 seconds until you have a nicely mixed powder.
In a separate bowl, whip 2 eggs for the egg wash.
In another bowl, add your turkey/chicken meat. Season generously, add your 1/4 cup of grated parmesan, and add 2 eggs. Mix really well until all of the ingredients are mixed well.
Roll out balls in whatever size you like. Dip in the egg and directly into the pork rind breading. Repeat this process until you use all of your meat.
Place your nuggets into your 400 degree pre-heated air fryer and air fry for ~20 minutes. If you do not have a rack system, you may need to flip at the halfway point. It’s important to ensure you hit the 165 internal temp. You might need a thermometer to check. You can find one here (this is my favorite and it’s cheap)—> https://amzn.to/2YFiV8m
Plate and enjoy!!
Yum! Love a good keto chicken nugget recipe. Thanks for sharing. – Danielle
They turned out awesome. I was worried because they were super lean they would dry out but they didn’t!
