Chicken Nuggets!

These are chick-fil-a style chicken nuggets, not like processed meat style.. though someday i'd like to make those too .. for fun. 

about 1 lb chicken breast or tenders or whatever kind of raw chicken you want to use
1/4 cup flour mixture (I used sorghum and a bit of corn flour this time, i'm sure about anything would work)
3/4 tsp salt or garlic salt
1 tsp garlic powder 
(whatever other seasonings you'd like to use)
about 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
chicken nuggets!

Cut chicken into small pieces, about 1 in -1.5 in.  Coat with flour, by tossing in a bowl, or a ziplock bag or whatever.  Then pour in coconut oil (try to spread it out) and toss - they will look less pretty after the oil - then put them in the oven on foil.  450 in a regular oven for about 15 mins, or if you want to be super excited about how fast and easy they are I used a convection toaster oven, 425 for 6-8 mins and they were DONE! I made way too many today so i'm excited to see how they are left over - next time i think i'm going to try freezing them prepared, but raw.  

 I also roasted almonds today, in a sauce pan - the top half are dry roasted, nothing but raw almonds in the pan stirring constantly - the bottom half were roasted with just a bit of coconut oil - they are browner and prettier and i can't tell a difference in taste/oiliness.  They are done when they smell nutty and the skins just start to crack or when they taste good ;).
