Nut Free Paleo Chicken Nuggets.

Kids love chicken nuggets… actually pretty sure all the people in the whole entire world love chicken nuggets. So for this reason we just had to make Paleo Chicken Nuggets. And because nuts are banned from schools we decided to make them nut free. 

So these nut free paleo chicken nuggets are perfect served cold for kids lunches! They’re even better served hot for dinny with delicious healthy crunchy sweet potato chips! We’re 99.9% sure your kids will love that dinner. You could even serve them with paleo tomato sauce! Let us know what your kids think. We get excited when we find out they like our recipes.

We even served these nut free paleo chicken nuggets at one of our friend’s Kids Bday parties! Look how cute.
