INSTRUCTIONS

Chicken Nuggets: Preheat oven to 400° In shallow dish, stir together almond flour, cornmeal, Parmesan, Allulose Granulated Sweetener, salt and pepper. In separate shallow dish, beat egg lightly.

Dip chicken into beaten egg; dredge in almond flour mixture. Arrange on parchment paper–lined baking sheet, spacing about 2 inches apart. Bake, turning once, for 18 to 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Barbecue Dipping Sauce: Meanwhile, heat coconut oil in small saucepan set over medium heat; cook onion, jalapeño and garlic for 3 to 5 minutes or until very tender. Stir in chili powder, cumin, oregano, smoked paprika, salt and pepper; cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant.

Stir in puréed tomatoes, Allulose Granulated Sweetener, vinegar, tomato paste, 2 tbsp water, mustard and Worcestershire sauce; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until thickened.

Crudités: Slice veggies and arrange the red pepper, cucumbers, broccoli and cauliflower on serving dish.

Serve Chicken Nuggets and Crudités with barbecue sauce for dipping.

Tip: For a creamy barbecue dipping sauce, let sauce cool completely; stir half of the barbecue sauce with the same amount of mayonnaise or plain yogurt.
