Chicken Nuggets

I was in the mood for some finger food, so I thought I would make some chicken nuggets. These were actually pretty good, especially since they were fried, but baked. They were really good dipped in some barbecue sauce (my favorite is Sweet Baby Rays). Enjoy!



Chicken Nuggets
Serves 2

7 oz uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into about 1-inch pieces
1 serving egg substitute
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup uncooked yellow cornmeal
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place the egg substitute in a bowl. Add the chicken pieces. Place the bread crumbs, cornmeal, garlic powder, cumin, black pepper and salt in a resealable plastic bag; shake to combine. Add the chicken pieces to the plastic bag and shake to coat the chicken.

Place the coated chicken pieces on the prepared baking sheet. Spray with nonstick cooking spray to moisten. Bake, turning halfway through baking, until the crumbs are browned and chicken is no longer pink, about 20 minutes. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

(Each serving is 5 pts.)
