How to Make 4 Ingredient Keto Chicken Nuggets

Begin by pre-heating your oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Open and drain the canned chicken and be sure to squeeze out as much excess moisture as you can. Then, combine all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl.

Stir well with a fork and use your hands to mold the chicken mixture into nugget-sized pieces. I used a small cookie scoop and then pressed the chicken tightly together in nugget shapes.

Bake for 9 minutes, flip over, and bake for another 9 minutes.

Serve with BBQ Dipping Sauce or Ketchup if desired. I’m so excited for you to try these 4 Ingredient Keto Chicken Nuggets!
