Home Made Chicken Nuggets Spiked With Cumin Curicumin & Flax #GlutenFree


Chicken nuggets for kids ? Not in my home ! Chunky chicken nuggets spiked with  cumin, sea salt, pepper, garlic powder and curicumin are a family favorite that every one in my home eats. Coat these in some cornflour and flax meal and you can bake or fry these nuggets. I usually bake them, but if my kids are in a hurry to eat them, I fry them.  Making chicken nuggets at home is easy and ensures the nuggets are actually made from real food, and the outcome is WAY better than the processed chicken nuggets that contain more bread filling than meat. Well, most brands anyway. It’s also a good way to introduce flavors and spices to your kids. Add a little brown sugar if you want a sweet and spicy  flavor. Just toss the chicken in the spices, add some egg white, some corn flour and flax meal ! Simple and healthy!  They freeze really well, so make some extra and store for future use. Eliminating bread crumbs make them gluten-free and the corn flour,  flax meal mix give it more flavor. 


 Nutrition Wise !

Good protein power with a touch of antioxidant power courtesy of the spices.  The flax give it some healthy fiber, lignans and omega -3 ! I love flax and use it in so many dishes !
