The Best Keto Black Nugget Chicken
We’ve all heard of chicken nuggets. A certain well-known fast food company skyrocketed them into our lives in 1981 and it’s never been the same since. Chicken nuggets became the food of children’s parties and supermarket retailers started targeting adults with “grown-up” varieties. But have you heard of nugget chicken? No? Yes? Well whether you have or you haven’t, you’re sure to remember them after reading this article. Because we’ve got the best keto black nugget chicken recipe in the world.
These little pieces of heaven come without the carbs, as they’re only coating is a very special rub. No breadcrumbs. Or batter. Or frying. But what you get is an absolutely ingenious substitute for those on the Keto or Atkins diet that’s also utterly delicious!
Our recipe starts with the Black Nugget Marinade made by Con Yeager. What you need to do is rub this into the meat with your hands, massaging as deeply as you can. Then leave the meat in the fridge for at least 24hrs. You’ll know when it’s ready because you’ll be shocked when you open the fridge – it turns the meat black! If at all possible, it’s best to sous vide in the marinade, which is a fancy term for vacuuming the meat before leaving it to marinade. Another great idea is to cook some mushrooms and include the remaining juice as part of the marinade. There are no hard and fast rules here, so feel free to experiment and let us know your ideas in the comments!
Once you’ve marinated the meat, cook in the oven at 450 until crisp. Season with salt and pepper and finish with a slice of halloumi cheese and a drizzle of Blue Top hot sauce! Trust us, you’ll never go back to chicken nuggets again!
