Do you ever get a craving for some Mcdonald’s nuggets? Well, I don’t. LOL. But I do definitely love chicken nuggets and have a very easy way to make my own.
So here’s a recipe that is perfect for Sunday Food Prep Day!
Baked Chicken Nuggets
- 20 ounces chicken breast, thawed and chopped into nuggets
- splash of egg whites
- 1/4 cup wheat bran
- 1 tbsp almond flour/meal
- 1 tbsp flaxmeal
- desired seasonings—garlic powder, onion powder, seasoning blend, chili powder, smoked paprika, salt, pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. After chicken is chopped up, pour a splash of egg whites on top and get all the pieces lightly covered. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add in chicken pieces and mix until all pieces are evenly coated with the mixture. Place on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 15-20 minutes. Makes 4-5 servings.
One way I served mine:
with roasted broccoli slaw pasta, fresh basil, and marinara. Plus a baked japanese sweet potato with a cinnamon swirl laughing cow cream cheese.
These little guys are tender on the inside, with a crispness on the outside. I love them! They keep well in the fridge, so I like to make a lot at once to eat throughout the week.
