So I have seen different recipes for these and most of them call for dill and some kind of corn starch or regular flour. First off I don’t like dill and we don’t eat flour so I knew I had to do this another way. These came out really good and the whole family liked them. And at only 2g of carbs each you just can’t beat it. So on to the recipe……

- 2tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
- (If using Tyson’s Shredded chicken) Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat; and cook entire bag of chicken until completely thawed and cooked through. Remove from heat.

- In a medium bowl, combine chicken, almond flour, egg, mayonnaise, 3oz. of cheese, and seasonings. Mix until well combined.
