Oven Baked Keto Chicken Nuggets Low-Carb Recipe

These incredibly easy chicken nuggets are ready in 30 minutes! Your family will love these. Make a large batch and freeze some for upcoming days. They are perfect for a lazy Sunday, chilling at home while watching movies on Netflix.

Our Keto Baked Chicken Nuggets recipe has a crispy crust with a soft texture on the inside. They are full of flavor from mayonnaise, parmesan, coconut flour, almond flour, and spices. 

Traditionally, chicken nuggets aren’t low-carb because they are coated with bread crumbs, which can promote inflammation in some people. Our recipe uses almond and coconut flours instead. These are handy flours to have in your low-carb kitchen because they are high in healthy fats and fiber, and low in carbs.

Our recipe is also naturally sweetened with vinegar instead of refined sugar. Research shows that vinegar has an antiglycemic effect that can be used to help control blood sugar levels (*). 

When picking out store-bought mayonnaise, go with a keto-friendly version that does not use vegetable oil and refined sugar. You can make your own mayo at home using olive or avocado oil, egg yolks, lemon, garlic, and vinegar. 

One fantastic thing about this recipe is that you can choose many different seasonings and find the best one. Some hot chili flakes or hot low carb sauce would be perfect to mix with your chicken nuggets.

Enjoy them for every occasion – for lunch, dinner, as an appetizer, or for a snack. We guarantee you are going to be amazed by their flavor.
