Paleo and Banting Friendly Chicken Nuggets [heba pap recipe, lchf, low carb, gluten-free]

It took me not more than 30 minutes to whip these up and they are absolutely divine. You’d never say that they are so healthy ;-). This recipe can also double up as a coating for fried chicken. Eating clean has never felt soooo good.

Ingredients (makes about 4 cups worth)

2 Large chicken breasts or 4 small chicken breasts (cubed)

2/3 cup heba pap (if you don’t have any just use some coconut flour – taste will be slightly different)

1 cup sunflower seed flour

60ml desiccated coconut

1.5 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda/baking soda

0.5 teaspoon himalayan salt

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 large eggs


5 Minutes to mix

20 Minutes to fry

Total: 25 Minutes

Heat up some coconut oil in a pan (3 tablespoons)

In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl beat the eggs then dip the chicken into the eggs till fully coated. Then place in  the dry ingredients and coat fully. Carefully drop the raw nuggets into the hot coconut oil and fry for 5 minutes on each side. Remove from the oil and allow to drain on paper towels. Enjoy with a baby spinach and green beans salad.


Fry a few green beans in the leftover coconut oil with some salt and a teaspoon of garlic. Serve on a bed of baby spinach with thinly sliced red onion.

It is that easy 😀
