Chicken Nuggets

Your famiy will enjoy these - no questions asked!

Your famiy will enjoy these - no questions asked!

These chicken nuggets get nice and crispy in the oven, and the meat stays tender and juicy. My son gobbled them up and ate seconds. He didn’t even ask if they were healthy which is like getting a five-star rating!

4 boneless chicken breasts
1 cup Fiber One
2 cups bite-size shredded wheat (no frosting, please)
2 tsp basil
2 tsp oregano
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt
1 egg slightly beaten
¼ cup skim milk
¼ cup whole wheat flour

Cut the chicken in chunks or strips and set aside. In a blender or food processor chop all dry ingredients except flour to the consistency of bread crumbs. Mix egg with milk. Lightly dredge chicken pieces in flour, dip in egg mixture and toss in crumb mixture. Place on greased cookie sheet and cook at 400˚F for 25 minutes until golden brown. Serve with sauce of your choice. You could easily add more spices to the crumb mixture, but I wanted to go easy since this was the first time I made this recipe.

Nutrition Information : A cooked three oz chicken breast has 142 calories, 26 grams of protein, three grams of fat. For the crumb and dredging mixture, I estimated another 50 calories and three grams fiber. It is difficult to be precise on this since there was still crumb and egg/milk mixture remaining when I was finished. For WW I estimated an extra point for the mixture in addition to the Points for the chicken.
