Chicken nuggets are perfect for a game day snack, party, or for a casual dinner. These nuggets are slightly crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside, and deliciously seasoned with just the right amount of kick. Be sure to make extra because you can freeze these for an easy meal on another day!

Makes about 35 chicken nuggets (more or less, based on size)


4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts

Flour Coating #1 (In Ziplock Bag):
½ cup white rice flour
½ cup tapioca flour
1 tablespoon + 1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon + 1 tsp. sweet paprika
¾ teaspoon salt

Flour Coating #2 (in bowl):
¾ cup white rice flour
½ cup tapioca flour
1 tablespoon + 1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
¾ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons black pepper

Egg Dip:
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk

Oil for frying
Large Zip-lock bag

Gluten free dipping sauce

1. Put chicken into the freezer as you are getting everything ready…this will firm it up just a little and make it easier to cut up
2. Set out a large plate with a couple of paper towels on it (for the cooked chicken)
3. Set out a large frying pan and pour in about a ½ inch of oil
4. Set out 2 large bowls (for flour mix #2, and the egg dip)

1. Fill the ziplock bag with the first coating ingredients: white rice flour, tapioca flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and salt. Zip shut and shake thoroughly to combine all seasonings.
2. In one of your bowls, prepare flour coating #2: Whisk together the white rice flour, tapioca flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper.
3. Prepare the egg dip in the second bowl by whisking together the eggs and the milk.
4. Get the chicken out of the freezer. Trim away any fat. Cut into nugget-sized pieces. Try to make them similar in size so that they’ll cook evenly.
5. Put all of the chicken pieces into the ziplock bag. Zip shut. Shake thoroughly to coat. (This step can be done in a bowl if you don’t have a ziplock bag…it’s just easier in a ziplock)
6. Dip a few chicken pieces into the egg mixture, and then into the flour mixture bowl. Press flour in gently to help it stick. Use one hand to dip into the egg, and the other to dip into the flour, so that you don’t transfer excess egg into the flour. Dip and coat all the pieces, a few at a time, then place on a large plate.
7. Heat up your oil until a test piece causes the oil to sizzle. I heat my stove on medium or just below medium, but every stove is different, so adjust yours as needed.
8. Cooking time will vary depending on how thick your chicken is, but mine usually take about 5-6 minutes per side. When you think they are done, test the thickest nugget by slicing it in half. Chicken should be fully cooked and tender, with no pink remaining.
9. When finished cooking, gently remove from oil to paper towel-lined plate. They will be VERY hot on the inside. Allow to drain and cool a little before serving.
10. Transfer to serving dish and serve with your favorite dipping sauces! Enjoy!!!


**To Cook/Freeze/Reheat: Fully cook the chicken nuggets and allow to cool. Flash freeze by setting on a plate or tray and putting into freezer for 15 minutes or so. Then, store in freezer ziplock bag or other airtight storage container. To reheat: Do not thaw nuggets. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place nuggets on cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake for about 15 minutes or until fully heated through.

**To Oven Bake Instead of Pan Fry: With your second flour coating, make the following change: Replace the tapioca flour and white rice flour with fine gluten free bread crumbs (keep all seasonings the same). Bake on a cookie sheet or baking pan sprayed with non-stick spray. You can even lay down tinfoil and spray that for easy clean-up. Place chicken nuggets on pan or foil, single-layer, and bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes (adjust time according to size/thickness of chicken).Turn all pieces half-way through baking. Chicken should be fully cooked with no pink remaining inside. Test the thickest chicken nugget to make sure they are done.

** Enjoy the recipe! **

Will this recipe work in an air fryer without gluten free bread crumbs?

Here’s my gluten free story! I started in fifth grade and stopped my senior year of high school, and just recently I mulled over going back and I’m starting my gluten free diet back up again after so many years of processed food and brain fog!

Can I also use Rice flour and Tapioca starch as a gluten free substitute to make Buffalo wings? And can I use the cornstarch instead the tapioca starch?

Miki Yang

Hi I really like this recipe. I was wondering if you could do an episode on GF fried fillet fish:)

Thank you for this recipe. I tried it using 1/2 c. for the bag, and 3/4 c. for the bowl of the 1-1 gluten-free baking flour only. I used olive oil and part butter to fry, and it came out great. This is the second recipe that I have tried from this website. I am so excited about trying another recipe. This recipe is a keeper.

Kyla Jean

Thanks for the recipe! I have tried it for both nuggets and strips of chicken and it works great. Nice and crunchy. But I was wondering if you have ever tried it for a fish fry? Or would any recipe alterations have to be made? Keep up the good work!

Hi! Thank you so much for the videos you share/create! You've made our GF journey much more tasty!
Question: for the flour part, can I use the gluten free all purpose flour mix by Pillsbury instead of the 2 types of flour you used?

Rebecca F

I just found you channel and I am excited to try the nuggets! But for now I shall go see what other types of videos you have.
Your channel name made me chuckle. Being gluten free is not a "habit" for me but a necessity if I was to live nd breathe. If it is a choice for you I'm happy for you to have that freedom if push came to shove.
I loved the video and I shall go watch more now!
