Keto Chicken Nuggets

2 pounds ground chicken
8 ounces cream cheese
1 large egg
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon cayene
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper

1 cup pork rind “flour” (blitz in processor)
½ teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper

  • Pre heat oven or air fryer to 400°
  • Place all the ingredients, except the outer coating, into a stand mixer with the paddle or a food processor
  • Blend until well combined & refrigerate 30 minutes
  • Whisk the coating ingredients together in a shallow bowl
  • The mixture will be soft and sticky. Use a large cookie scoop or measure 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture
  • Drop and roll into the coating mixture and pat all around to coat the chicken and shape into a nugget
  • For oven: bake 15 mins, flip over and bake another 10 minutes or until nicely browned.
  • For air dryer: cook in batches and place about 12 nuggets onto the grate of the air fryer, cook for 10 minutes then flip them over and cook another 5 minutes.
