Kid Friendly Meal: Keto Skillet Chicken Nugget Meatballs – with dipping sauce

Need a keto meal idea the kids will be excited to eat, too?

It’s something I struggle with, and I’ll try anything to avoid making two separate dinners. This yummy and easy skillet chicken nugget meatballs recipe uses ground chicken to make crispy meatballs you can dip like chicken nuggets! It’s pretty much a genius idea that I’m happy to report is kid-approved.

My kids loved this meal and I’ll be gladly fitting it in my family’s meal rotation.

These crispy pan-fried meatballs rock!

There’s nothing not to love about this idea. The process includes simply mixing up your ground chicken with almond flour, egg, and seasonings. Then roll into small meatballs, dip into egg, coat with almond flour mixture, and pan-fry. Get ready to bite into crispy and delicious meatballs that kind of look like yummy chicken nuggets!

Feel free to dip these into any keto-friendly condiments you’d prefer!

My favorite is mayo mixed with a little sriracha hot sauce! So yum. Full-fat Caesar could work too, or even blue cheese dressing. YUM! There were no complaints from my kids, and they asked for these again. I love when a meal turns out successful and no one even discusses if it’s keto or not! Enjoy 🙂

    Could you put these in an air fryer?

    • Lina D

      These may be a little sticky for the air fryer. I would hate for them to fall through basket or get stuck, it the only thing ?

  2. Nichole

    Yum. Kids liked them also. ty

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! That’s great to hear, Nichole! You’re so welcome!

  3. Eileen Baez

    Do you think using ground lamb would be a good idea?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! If you are a fan of ground lamb it should work similar to the ground chicken or turkey! Hope that helps!
