Spicy chicken nuggets have become all the craze at fast-food restaurants, but they are packed full of carbohydrates and inflammatory oils. Instead, try this spicy keto chicken nugget recipe at home! It takes less than 20 minutes to make and they taste just like regular crispy, crunchy, spicy nuggets!
To tone down the spice level a bit, you can add a side of ranch dressing or switch the pork rinds crumbs for a less-spicy flavor.
Pour the pork rind crumbs into a shallow bowl or plate.
Chop the chicken tenderloins into small square chicken nugget pieces.
Press each individual chicken nugget piece into the pork rind crumbs until each side is evenly coated. Repeat this step until all chicken nugget pieces are fully coated.
Place the keto spicy chicken nuggets into an air fryer and cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 7 minutes or until the inside is no longer pink.
Serve your keto spicy chicken nuggets alone, with keto-friendly ranch dressing, or spicy sriracha mayonnaise!
