These honey mustard chicken nuggets are such a fun and delicious snack that come together in a flash (less than 15 minutes to be exact!)

TIPS: You can use 1 egg instead of 2 egg whites, but the flavor of the batter will be a bit “eggier.” Also, you can use maple syrup instead of honey. To keep this recipe paleo, make sure your mayonnaise and hot sauce do not include any sugar or non-compliant ingredients.
