Paleo Chicken Nuggets with "BBQ" Sauce

I stumbled upon this recipe from Multiply Delicious while filtering google results for paleo recipes. As usual, I tweaked a few things. Except for the coconutty texture of the "breading" it tastes almost like the real thing! This is the recipe I followed:

Chicken Nuggets

1/2 kg ground chicken
1 egg
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup + 1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
Coconut oil for frying
Salt and pepper

  1. In a bowl, mix to combine 1/4 cup almond flour, dessicated coconut, and salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine ground chicken, 1/2 cup almond flour, onion powder, garlic powder, egg, and salt and pepper. Mix well until everything is incorporated. Form into balls and flatten a bit (so they'll look like chicken nuggets), then coat in almond flour and coconut mixture.
  3. Cook in coconut oil and serve with "BBQ" sauce.

Paleo BBQ Sauce

3/4 cup 100% natural orange juice
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
10 Tbsp tomato paste
3 to 4 Tbsp coconut sugar
1/2 medium onion, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp coconut oil

  1. Heat coconut oil in medium heat. Cook onion and garlic and saute until soft.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients except coconut sugar and simmer for 5 mins.
  3. Add coconut sugar and simmer again for 10 to 15 mins.
