Keto Chicken Nuggets

5.0
1 rating
These Keto Chicken Nuggets are flavorful and juicy with low-carb almond flour breading. And you don't even need to fry them, they come out perfectly in either an oven or an air-fryer. Less mess with incredible crispy nuggets. The parmesan cheese gives the nuggets a slightly cheesy flavor and makes them irresistibly tasty.
