Cajun Chicken Nuggets

This is an easy and quick accompaniment to your veggies.  Easy to prepare.  Make a batch over the weekend and consume throughout the week.

For the cajun rub, mix equal amounts of:

  • ground cumin
  • paprika powder (smoked variety is good too)
  • cayenne pepper
  • dried oregano

If you have a mortar and pestle, grind them all with a pinch of salt and a few peppercorns. Mix in enough olive oil to make a paste.  The oil helps the elements stick to the meat for more flavour!

Now, add the paste to your nuggets of chicken (thighs and breast work best).  Ensure enough coverage for maximum flavour.  Marinate overnight. Pan-fry in the morning for about 10-15 minutes depending on the size of your nuggets.

I have mine for breakfast with slices of avocado - protein and good fats - BOOM!
