INGREDIENTS & SUBSTITUTIONS


⭐️ GROUND CHICKEN – You may substitute for canned chicken, but I have found ground chicken to be tastier.

⭐️ WHOLE EGG – Used to help the flour stick.

⭐️ CARNIVORE CRISPS CHICKEN FLOUR – Substitute for equal parts pork panko or ground up pork rinds. If you lean keto, you may substitute this for almond flour.

⭐️ PARMESAN CHEESE – Adds a great savoury punch!

⭐️ SALT & PEPPER – Adjust to your taste.

⭐️ GARLIC POWDER AND ONION POWDER – Optional, but adds quick and easy additional flavour.

TIPS AND TRICK FOR SUCCESS


TIP #1: For a richer flavour, opt for dark meat ground chicken (rather than ground chicken breast) if it is available to you.

TIP #2: Ensure nuggets are placed in a single layer in the air fryer, as it allows for even cooking. Ensure you flip half way so that the entire nugget turns into the desired golden brown color.
