I also love how easy these are to make. Easy clean up too, not that it matters, since I have a new dishwasher, but still. And you simply can’t eat these without Honey Mustard Sauce, the world’s best dip. I love making my own. It only has 4 ingredients and tastes amazing.

Paleo Chicken Nuggets with Honey Mustard Sauce

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 3 Chicken Breasts, boneless/skinless
  • ½ cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • ¼ cup Arrowroot Starch
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • ½ tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil, for cooking
  • Honey Mustard Dip


  1. Place the shredded coconut, arrowroot starch, salt, cinnamon, and chile powder in a gallon-size zip-top bag or large storage container with a tight-fitting lid. The plastic bag method is the least messy, so I highly suggest that. Seal it and give it a good shake to mix everything together. Set aside.
  2. Using kitchen shears, trim any fat off the chicken and cut into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Place all chicken pieces in the plastic bag, seal, and start shaking until all chicken pieces are coated. Set aside.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add enough coconut oil to have a thin layer on the bottom, about a tablespoon or two, depending on your skillet size.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, take chicken out of the bag and place in the skillet. Don't cook it all at once, add just enough so the pieces aren't touching. It takes me about 3-4 batches to cook them all.
  6. Cook about 2-3 minutes, when the chicken is turning opaque and white about halfway up the sides. This may take longer depending on how big you cut them.
  7. Using a wooden spatula, gently scrape/scoop the chicken to flip them over and continue cooking until they are cooked all the way through.
  8. Remove and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  9. Repeat steps 5-8 until all chicken is cooked. Serve with Honey Mustard Dip.

Super tasty, but SO messy to make! I’d love to try making this in an air fryer or the oven.

@jenn, you could use cassava flour. It works great for baking breaded foods. You can buy it here:
