  4. Bread each chicken piece by dipping it in coconut flour, then egg wash and finally press into the pork rind bread crumbs

  6. Preheat the air fryer to 400F and cook nuggets for 8 minutes or until the internal temperature of the nuggets reaches 165F
  7. Remove the chicken nuggets from the air fryer and allow them to cool slightly
  8. Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days
