Homemade Gluten Free chicken nuggets are easy and tasty.  With just a few ingredients you can have a healthy dinner that will be a family favorite!

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
  • 2 lbs. GMO free, pasture raised boneless chicken breast or tenderloins
  • 1 cp millet flour
  • 2 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tsp. garlic: fresh or dried
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. each spices: thyme, marjoram
  • 1.5 lbs. Mangalitsa lard
  1. Place lard in pan such that there is 1-1 1/4 inch of fat in the pan when melted.  Heat over medium-medium high heat to a temperature of 350-400 degrees while preparing other ingredients.

  2. In a large ziploc bag, combine the flour, salt, and spices.  Set aside.

  3. Slice the chicken breast across the grain in roughly 1/2 inch slices.  Cut into smaller pieces if desired.  Tenderloins don't need to be cut.  Place pieces in the bag of flour and shake until they are all coated well.  Let set for a minute or two.

  4. Be sure the fat is hot enough, then carefully lay the strips/nuggets into the hot fat.  When the pieces are nicely browned on the bottom and the meat is white up the edges, carefully turn them over.  Fry on the other side until nicely browned.   It should be around 3 minutes for each side.
