  • 1lb ground Organic Chicken (ground Organic Turkey is also a great option)
  • Olive Oil Spray
  • ¼ cup seasoned gluten free breadcrumbs mixed into meat + 1 cup for dredging
  • 1tbsp. mayonnaise or vegenese
  • ¼ parmesan cheese
  • ½ tbsp. flax meal
  • 2 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2tbsp. onion powder
  • ¼ Trader Joe’s riced cauliflower
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Olive Oil Spray

Preheat oven 350*. Combine ground chicken and rest of the ingredients, saving the 1 cup of breadcrumbs for dredging. Mix well and refrigerate 20 minutes. Use a melon baller to portion out the nuggets and pat down into the shape of a circle. Then pat the nugget in the breadcrumbs and place on a cookie sheet. Spray with olive oil to lightly coat and cook 10 minutes. Turn nuggets and cook another 5-7 minutes until the patties are firm and done.

*tip, if nuggets are too squishy to form into balls, try popping them in the fridge for 30 minutes prior to molding.
