Chicken Nuggets--healthy option

Crispy chicken nuggets will make your picky eaters--and yourself happy. The fact that it's lean chicken with flour, egg, breadcrumbs, and spices will make this guilt free. Just serve it with vegetables.


1) Preheat oven to 400 F with baking sheet inside.

2) Cut 1 chicken breast into 2 inch pieces. You will dredge each piece in the flour mixture, coat with egg, then coat in the breadcrumb mixture. (Recipes below). Place on a large plate.

3) Remove pan from preheated oven. Quickly spritz with non-stick spray. Put chicken on pan and bake 12-15 minutes, flipping halfway through. Seve when brown and crispy.

Flour mixture:
1/2 cup flour 
2 tablespoons cornstarch

2 eggs, whisked

Breadcrumb mixture:
1 cup breadcrumbs--try a recipe for homemade breadcrumbs.
1 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar

Coat in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs.
My fingers got hilariously dirty from this activity.

My husband likes his with hot wing chicken sauce and mustard. Yum!
