winner winner chicken dinner
Last week I saw this recipe of Jessica’s. It made me drool. My computer keys are still not working correctly. So I decided to make it with a few small changes based on what I had on hand. (Allena…Trent will LOVE these!!!)
Crispy Chicken Nuggets adapted from How Sweet It Is
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
3 egg whites
1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1/8 cup whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast, optional
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cut chicken into cubes. In a bowl, combine egg whites and lightly beat with a fork. In another bowl, add breadcrumbs, flour, 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper, and nutritional yeast. Lay a wire rack on a baking sheet and spray it with non-stick spray.
Season chicken with remaining salt and pepper. Dip each piece in egg whites then in the breadcrumb mixture. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces, and lay on the wire rack. Spray with non-stick spray or spritz with olive oil. (Jessica’s brilliant note: “I find that spraying them with spray gives them crunch but does not cause the oven to smoke at the high temperature.”)
Bake for 12 minutes, flip over, and bake for 12 more. Serve with ketchup, BBQ sauce or dip of choice!
