These Keto Chicken Parmesan Nuggets are so good! I honestly cannot understand why one would use bread crumbs to make chicken nuggets when making it with parmesan cheese is so tasty.

I’ve made these keto chicken parmesan nuggets a couple of times. My kids absolutely loves it and it’s a quick dinner or easy lunch.

The recipe calls for frying the chicken strips, but you can bake the chicken nuggets in the oven too. Just be careful to not overcook the chicken if you’re using the white meat from chicken breast.

I love serving the chicken nuggets with Carb Smart Sriracha Sauce.
