Hello everyone!! Raise your hand if you are as obsessed with chicken nuggets as I am. I am assuming everyone is raising their hands or you wouldn’t be reading this blog post!

I have a new chicken nugget recipe here for you guys that is unlike any other recipe I have shared before. For starters, this uses ground chicken instead of chicken tenders or breasts. And I also sneak in veggies into them. They are perfect for anyone who hates broccoli and carrots but wants to eat healthy (like myself). They hide so well in this recipe and add some extra nutrients.

Ezra is a huge fan of these too and I love serving them with pretty much anything!

How to make the easiest homemade paleo chicken nugget with veggies!

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the broccoli, carrot, chicken, egg and spices and mix together to fully combine
  3. Mix together the breading ingredients in a small bowl
  4. Using clean hands, scoop about 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken nugget mixture into your hands and form into an egg shape then dip in breading to evenly coat and add to baking sheet
  5. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes then serve with your favorite dipping sauce! I love using mustard, buffalo sauce and ketchup!

  1. These had an exceptional flavor. I was so, so surprised. I literally would hover over my children to see if they had any leftovers I could eat. I did not spray my sheet Pan enough so my coating fell off but they were still great. I am a homemade chicken nugget convert with these babies!
