Directions

Place chicken breasts onto a cutting board and use a meat pounder to flatten them out. Cut each breast into 2x2 inch pieces.

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lay a wire rack over top. Lightly grease the wire rack with olive oil and set aside.

Use a food processor to pulse 1/2 cup oats, coconut, garlic salt, pepper, ginger, paprika, and parsley.

Add the remaining 1/2 cup oats and pulse for just 1-2 seconds so that some of the oats keep their shape.

In another bowl, lightly beat the egg whites.

With clean hands, dip the chicken pieces in the egg whites, then dredge in the oat/coconut mixture.

Lay the breaded chicken pieces on the lightly greased wire rack over the baking sheet.

Using a spoon, drizzle a small amount of melted coconut oil over each piece of chicken. Flip chicken over and drizzle a small amount over the other side of the chicken.

Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until chicken is just cooked through.

For the last 2 minutes of cooking, set the oven to broil to crisp the nuggets.

Transfer to a serving platter and serve immediately.
