Healthy Homemade Chicken Nuggets(sauce too)


     These have been a family favorite since 2005.  When I find chicken on sale I cut half of it up to make these yummy nibbles.  I put them in freezer bags with the serving size for each member in our family so for our family of 5 I put 25 in a bag.

Ingredients:
1 Cup fat free Greek Yogurt
1 lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast (cut into nugget size pieces)

Coating Mixture
1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
1/2 Cup Cornmeal
2 TB Flour
2 TB Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Dried Basil
1/2 tsp Garlic Granules
1/4 tsp salt

Add chicken and the yogurt in a bowl and stir until chicken is well coated.  Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray lightly baking sheet with vegetable oil spray.

Mix together remaining ingredients in a shallow bowl.

Coat chicken one piece at a time with the coating mixture.  Place chicken on baking sheet in a single layer and lightly spray with vegetable oil.  

Bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center.

Now for the dipping sauces.  Ranch and BBQ are the faves of the kids but for a bit more sophisticated palate and for moms everywhere that will be eating these nuggets with their children I want to give you the gift of yummy sauces that are super easy to whip up.

Creamy Honey Mustard Sauce
1/4 Cup fat free Sour Cream
1 TB plus 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
1 TB Honey

Black Berry Dipping Sauce
1/4 Cup all fruit seedless Blackberry Spread
2 TB Olive Oil Mayo
1/8 tsp cinnamon

  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper, then put in the bowl with the olive oil and mix well so the olive oil evenly coats all of the chicken. Put a few chunks of chicken at a time into the breadcrumb mixture to coat, then on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the top with olive oil spray then bake 8 - 10 minutes. find out best cameras and their asseccories, wide variety of brands in cheap rates at Pakistan Online Shopping Stores
