Recipe: Keto/Carnivore Chicken Nuggets


  • 3/4 pound pre-cooked shredded chicken (or one 12-ounce can of shredded chicken for a quick substitute)

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella

  • 3 tablespoons of grated parmesan

  • Seasoning to taste (Optional: 1 tablespoon of ranch powder. Feel free to experiment with other seasonings, but be careful with adding too much if its salty, like a seasoning salt.)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded chicken, egg, mozzarella, parmesan, and your choice of seasoning. Mix until well combined.

  3. Form the mixture into small balls and place them on the prepared sheet pan (this recipe usually makes 12 nuggets).

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

  5. Flip each nugget at the 10 minute mark for even baking.

  6. Once done, remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.

Serving Suggestions

While these nuggets are a fantastic snack on their own, they can also be paired with a side salad, an avocado, or some deviled eggs (depending on if you're paleo/keto/carnivore) for a more substantial meal. They're perfect for lunchboxes, picnics, or a quick snack on the go.


Whether you're a busy parent looking for healthier snack options for your kids or someone following a strict keto or carnivore diet, these chicken nuggets are sure to be a hit. They're easy to make, delicious, and align with your dietary goals. Give them a try, and you might just find yourself making them on repeat!
