114 gm Chicken breast, boneless, skinless
1/4 clove(s) Garlic (minced, for sauce)
1/4 tbsp minced Ginger root (for sauce)
1/2 cup slices Plum (and chopped, for sauce)
1/2 medium egg Egg
1/4 tbsp Honey (for sauce)
1/8 tbsp Soy sauce, low sodium (for sauce)
1/8 cup Coconut flour
1/4 pinch Salt and pepper
1/3 tbsp Rice wine vinegar (for sauce)
1/4 cup Coconut flakes, unsweetened
1/8 cup Water (for sauce)
1/2 tbsp Ginger-garlic paste (for sauce)


Chicken Nuggets: Preheat oven to 400 F.

Place the coconut flour in one shallow bowl, the beaten eggs in another bowl, and the coconut and Ginger Garlic Seasoning in a third bowl. Season the chicken breast cubes with a pinch each of salt and pepper, then dunk each cube first in the coconut flour, then the eggs, and then the coconut- Ginger Garlic seasoning.

Lay on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until toasty brown and cooked to an internal temperature of 165 F.

Plum Sauce: Add all of the ingredients to a medium saucepan with a lid and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a medium-low heat, and simmer for 10 minutes until the plums are very soft and falling apart.

Transfer to a blender or food processor and process until smooth.

Assembly: Serve the chicken nuggets with the plum sauce and enjoy warm.
