Tasty Tuesday: Primal Chicken Nuggets

As I previously have stated, Joseph and I have been taking turns cooking. Tonight was his night and he had grand plans for his dinner including home made chicken nuggets. Typical chicken nuggets are fried in oil and covered in flour. While, I’m not against the deliciousness of those options they aren’t necessarily the healthy we are going for. I mean, flour goes in all sorts of delicious things but cavemen didn’t eat it.

Instead, Joseph made a few swaps to make them align a little better with how we eat that turned it into a pretty tasty nugget.

And by pretty tasty, I mean they were FAB-U-LOUS!

We mixed up a little dijon mustard and honey to dip them in and they were a match made in heaven.
