These gluten free and Paleo golden nuggets will please everyone in the family!  They are a flash to make and yummy to eat.   Yet, they pack a dose of turmeric, the spice everyone raves about on social media.  Turmeric not only contains antioxidants, but is being researched for its anti-inflammatory effects, anti-cancer effects, and cholesterol-lowering effects.  Yes, I’m excited about turmeric!  

The best thing about these Paleo chicken bites isn’t the health benefits.  It’s crunchy curry coating.  It’s hard to believe they are gluten-free.  Enjoy!
