Recipe: Chicken MomNuggets

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)

Chicken MomNuggets

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.

Pin It!
