Chicken Nuggets

Plum Sauce

  • 2 cups plums chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic finely minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger finely grated
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp Simply Asia Sweet Ginger Garlic Seasoning


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 Simply Asia Sweet 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-Sweet 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.


  • Serve the chicken nuggets with the plum sauce and enjoy warm.
