Instructions

Chicken Nuggets

  • In a glass baking dish, place butter. Put dish inside oven. Turn oven to 425. Allow butter to melt. Meanwhile, mix flour, baking powder, salt, buttermilk powder, avocado oil, paprika, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Add chicken chunks. Stir to coat. (Alternatively, combine the dry ingredients in a large zip top bag and add the chicken, then shake to coat.)
  • Arrange nuggets in a single layer, apart from each other, in baking dish. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Turn. Bake another 15 minutes. Serve with homemade ketchup, if desired.

Roasted Purple Potatoes

  • Heat oven to 425. Cut potatoes into quarters. Toss with olive oil in a bowl, until they are well-coated. Transfer to a baking sheet. Arrange in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt. Bake at 425 for 30 min, or until cooked and browned.

  1. Loved these! My son even asked where I bought them from
    Got confused about the salt in the chicken nugget recipe; it is listed twice. I just used 1 tsp & all was good. Is there another ingredient that should have been listed instead of the 2nd salt?
