Kid’s Favorite Low-FODMAP Chicken Nuggets Recipe; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Printer Friendly Version

The kid in all of us loves chicken nuggets.  What could be better than a crispy, crunchy shell over hot succulent chicken?  This recipe reminds me of Chick-Fil-A, only better…since it contains no gluten and is low-FODMAP!!

Your children (and you) are going to be so excited by my low-FODMAP Chicken Nugget recipe.  You are going to want to make this dinner again and again.  Easy and so good!

Try these with my super low-FODMAP special sauce for dipping.  Goes perfectly! Or another family favorite of my low-FODMAP Macaroni and Cheese 🙂

Kid’s Favorite Low-FODMAP Chicken Nuggets; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients

Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 20 min

Serves 4-6


  • 16 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunky cubes
  • 3/4 cup low-FODMAP milk (lactose-free or almond for dairy-free version) mixed with 1 teaspoon vinegar
    • This creates low-FODMAP ‘buttermilk’
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup low-FODMAP gluten-free flour (I used Authentic Foods GF Classical Blend- my favorite low-FODMAP flour)
    • Check out my bake off blog for this flour’s results in baking tests!
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Generous amount canola oil for frying (or other preferred oil)
  • Serve with low-FODMAP Special/Secret Sauce 


  • Set up 2 bowls
  • Place egg and low-FODMAP milk/vinegar in one bowl and beat
  • Place flour and seasonings in second bowl
  • Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture, then flour mixture, then repeat again
  • In a medium sized saucepan, pour the oil so that it is about 2-4 inches high
  • Heat oil on medium-high heat
  • Place chicken pieces in oil
  • Shake the excess off each piece of chicken and carefully drop in the oil when it is hot enough, letting it fry for about 8 minutes or until crispy.
  • Repeat for all chicken nuggets, you may have to add additional oil depending on the amount you use.
  • Once they have been fried, place them on a paper-towel-lined plate to allow the extra oil to drip off
  • Serve immediately
