For the breading:

1 cup almond meal

2 Tablespoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning

½ teaspoon Himalayan sea salt

½ teaspoon onion powder

1 large egg

1 lb. chicken cutlets – cut 1½ inch pieces

2 Tablespoons Gee (clarified butter) – for frying

Coconut oil – for baking



In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg for the egg wash.

Dip the chicken 1½ inch pieces in the egg wash, then in the breading mix. Make sure to coat thoroughly.

If you are baking the chicken nuggets, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large klonopin healthcarewell cooking sheet with a light spray of coconut oil and then place the breaded nuggets on the pan. Bake for 25 minutes turning them every 5-7 minutes. Before eating, check there is no pink in the center of the chicken!

If you are frying the chicken nuggets, heat 2 Tablespoons of Gee in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the breaded nuggets and flip every 3-4 minutes until cooked all the way through. About 12-15 minutes (total). Discard the Gee left in the pan.

    Hey Autumn I’d love to make these what are the container portions for these on 21 day fix?

  • Kellie

    What could I sub for the egg wash? We love these in our home, but even the small amount of egg is messing with my stomach. Thank you!

    • Autumn

      You can use a extra virgin olive oil and flour or a “flax egg wash” (just type it into google for a recipe) instead. Doesn’t stick quite as well but it will definitely get the job done.

  • Christina

    I made these last night and wow so delicious!! I Am going to make more now! ?

  • Jenna

    I also wondered about substituting the almond meal for something else. My fiancee has a nut allergy, so even with the almond milk and such in the Fixate recipes, I wondered what I could substitute it with.

    • Autumn

      Hey Jenna, substituting slightly changes the macros, but you can swap out for oat or coconut flour. Find the ones he likes best and also work well with the specific recipe you’re making!

  • Stacey Payne

    What can I use as an alternative to almond meal??? My daughter has anaphylactic nut allergies. Thank you!

    • Autumn

      Hey Stacey, you can try coconut or oat flour!

  • Jessica

    Could you use regular sea salt instead of the Himalayan sea salt and is the all purpose seasoning the 21 day fix all purpose seasoning? I am wanting to make these for my kids tonight. Thanks

  • Ali

    Would it be possible to sub the flour for organic wheat Panko breadcrumbs?

  • Victoria

    Could you use this same breading recipe to make fish sticks?

    • Autumn

      I don’t see why not Victoria! Great idea

    Where can I find Gee? We have Whole Foods, Trader Joes and Publix where I live. Would it be in the oil section or refrigerator butter section?

    • Autumn

      It would be in the dairy/butter section. I know Whole Foods has it.

    • Jennifer

      I order mine from Great price and they deliver it to your door.

  • Danielle

    Can you use coconut flour by chance?

    • Autumn

      You could but it might alter the taste/texture.

  • Melanie Cyr

    Hi Autumn, I looked for almond meal at my supermarket and didn’t find any. The only thing they had was corn meal but I didn’t want that so I bought molded almonds? Would that work??

    • Autumn

      Yes, that should work, just use a food processor or blender to make almond meal/flour out of it.

  • Jennifer

    Any particular band of almond meal I’ve never used it before…. Thanks for the awesome recipe!!!

  • Rabeea

    If I make a batch of these, how can I store them for later use? Will they be ok in the freezer or do I bake them half-way done and then freeze them?

  • Lauren Lilak

    These are also delicious dipped in some almond/coconut milk mixed with a little hot sauce! Makes buffalo chicken nuggets 🙂

  • Lory Roberts

    We have a tree nut allergy in our house. What do you suggest we try besides the almond meal? I normally use whole wheat bread crumbs for recipes that use them.

    • Autumn Calabrese

      You can use flaxseed meal.

      • Anna De Bartolo

        Autumn, I found that Bob’s Red Mill High fiber cereal works perfectly too! The consistency is that of bread crumbs, which makes the batter stay in place! Healthy too! 🙂

  • Mary

    Tried this recipe this evening. My big kid “hubby” and the little kids loved them.

  • Shannon Schimelpfening

    Tried these tonight! They were very easy and very delicious. I couldn’t find gee so I baked them. Thanks for an easy and healthy recipe Autumn!

  • Amanda Huyser

    I can’t wait to try these!! My son is such a picky eater!

  • Claire

    Do you think it would be possible to egg wash and bread then freeze? Or maybe cook partially then freeze??? Just trying to think about prepping …

    • Jen

      You need to cook them thoroughly first, then freeze them. You will be able to heat them up in an oven or toaster oven very easily just as you would any frozen chic or fish stick.

  • Connie Trowbridge

    Another awesome, easy and delicious recipe. The timing is perfect as I’m about to go grocery shopping and can pick up the ingredients needed! Thanks for sharing my munchkin will get these in her lunch tomorrow =)
