Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Chicken Nuggets (IF*)

In partnership with FaveHealthyRecipes, these are one of my kids favorite recipes with none of the processed chicken or various chicken parts found in commercial recipes. With the crisp outer breading sealing all the natural juices of the chicken in, there are no dry pieces and all pieces are uniformly done. That is something that can’t always be said for whole chicken pieces. If you are looking for what to eat with these chicken nuggets, I would suggest either my low carb honey mustard sauce, BBQ sauce, or a Buffalo sauce.

For even more healthy chicken recipes, FaveHealthyRecipes has an unbelievable section of great chicken recipes both for weekdays and the weekend. ( )

(IF*) – Induction Friendly if omitting coconut flour (just increase the Parmesan Cheese)

  • is the grated Parmesan cheese the dry stuff or real grated cheese that sits in the refrigerator?

  • How many net carbs in 1/2cup coconut flour?

  • Kent, I live in a dorm that unfortunately does not have an oven. Do you have suggestions as to what to do if I don't have an oven/deep fat fryer? 

  • +likadooa because fat is NOT bad for you! I've lost 40lbs in the last 3 months on this diet. My blood pressure is down and I feel great. Eating low fat is a scam.

  • what kind of deep fried oil are you using?

  • Im so looking forward to making this tonight. Im only 5 days into induction but ive lost almost 30lbs i know its water weight but hey i like to see numbers go down

  • New research shows low carb diet better than low fat and your heart is healthier on low carb, too. I am on the induction phase and have lost 4 pounds in first 4 days. Need to lose 20 more

  • Looks like a good recipe to try.  Yum.

  • Coconut flour? where can that be found? And its not like regular flour?

  • Thanks so much!!

  • lot of work, but I liked the first ingredients in the floured battered.

  • Half a cup of cream, can i use the cooking cream?!

  • I lost major CMs off my body but just 2 kilos .. Its been 3 weeks ! I do hip hop abs at least 5 days a week 🙁 .. I dont even know whats the problem

  • Just discovered you and you "doable" recipes.  This one has so many applications!  break them up and use in a low carb pita with lettuce and tomato, or layer in a pan, dump some low carb red sauce and Italian cheese blend, bake for a bit for chicken parm.  I see these as being staples to have that "crunch breading" I've been missing!

  • Great vid. How much weight did you loose on atkins Kent?

  • what kind of oil did you use?

  • definitely going to try this recipe

  • I did it with Almond Flour and it tasted delicious! Will try with Coconut Flour

  • Baked instead of frying, they were delicious.

  • I have to say that I made these after watching this video and followed it to the T and I'm not sure if this is a good thing it bad thing, buy I am addicted to this chicken but it's fried so that's y I'm not sure if its a good thing or a bad thing. I'm not on the Atkins diet but am on a low carb diet, but I unfortunately don't lose weight like normal people. I went through sweating really bad, drinking a lot more water, having alot more energy and my fingers no longer swell when I'm exercising, but I have been on this diet now for almost 3 weeks and have lost nothing. My doctor is trying to figure out y. And yes I had my thyroid checked and I know about good carbs and bad carbs.

  • Love watching your recipe videos. Hope you start making videos again soon.

  • Kent, how many chicken nuggets are a serving size?

  • The fat is the best part! I'd leave it on.

  • I'd use pork ride gold dust instead of coconut flour. No carbs!

  • kent any nrw videos upcoming we really miss you

  • Thank you for doing these videos. . Very helpful

  • Good job Kent – congratulations on the lifestyle change.
