The boy doesn't usually eat much meat. I really wanted to have chicken for dinner. So, I decided to make some nuggets from scratch. They turned out super well and he ate a bunch of them!
(Served with steamed peas with some parmesan cheese, oven roasted red skinned potato wedges, and ketchup)
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into small (~1 inch) chunks
2 c corn flakes (I used wheat & rice flakes)
3 Tbsp parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp curry powder
1 Tbsp dried onion flakes (or ~1 tsp onion powder)
4 Tbsp light ranch dressing
Preheat oven to 450 F.
Process cereal into crumbs (I used a food processor and made them nice and fine, but you could crush them with a rolling pin in a bag or the like). Stir in cheese, curry powder, and onion flakes or powder.
Dip chicken pieces in ranch dressing, and then coat evenly in cereal crumbs.
Place nuggets on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Spray the tops of the nuggets lightly with cooking spray.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until baked through. Serve with preferred dipping sauce.
