Cracker-Crusted Chicken Nuggets

Servings: 4

Net-carb count: 1 net carb per serving

Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 cup Sea Salt Crackers (equivalent to 1 pouch)
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Cooking oil spray


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the crackers until they are a crumb consistency. 
  3. In a shallow dish, combine cracker crumbs, parmesan, salt, pepper, cayenne & avocado oil; mix well.
  4. Set a wire rack on the baking sheet; lightly coat rack with cooking spray. 
  5. Cut the chicken into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Place eggs in a shallow dish. Dip the chicken pieces into the beaten eggs until well coated; transfer them to cracker mixture and coat evenly with crumbs. Place them on the rack, evenly spaced.
  6. Bake until the chicken is cooked through and the nuggets are crispy & golden brown (about 10 minutes), flipping halfway. 
  7. Serve alongside your favorite New Primal sauces. Take a big bite, close your eyes, and escape to chicken nugget paradise.

The best part about this recipe is you can swap chicken with any of your favorite proteins: salmon, tofu, maybe a little crab cake action or keto mac & cheese balls… Who’s hungry?! 🤤
