Crispy Chicken Bites

SERVINGS: 20-24 nuggets
COOKING TIME: 10-15 minutes

McDonald's has nothing on these delicious nuggets. The crispy almond-based coating and yummy honey-mustard sauce will make this quick-dish a family favorite in no time. For more kid-friendly, Tosca-approved meal ideas, pick up your copy of The Eat-Clean Diet for Family and Kids.
• 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts weighing about 6 oz. / 170 g each
• 1/4 cup / 60 ml of oat bran
• 1/4 cup / 60 ml of wheat germ
• 1 Tbsp / 15 ml coarsely ground flaxseed
• 1/4 cup / 60 ml coarsely ground almonds
• 1/2 tsp / 2 1/2 ml sea salt
• 1/2 tsp / 2 1/2 ml white pepper
• Pinch garlic powder
• 1/2 cup / 120 ml water or low-sodium chicken broth
• 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare baking sheet by lining with parchment paper or coating lightly with cooking spray.
  2. Cut chicken breasts into nugget-sized pieces, about 1.5 inches square. Set aside.
  3. Next, combine all dry ingredients in a large container with a tightly fitting lid. Shake well. This is your coating mixture.
  4. Combine water and egg in a medium bowl. Dip each piece in the water/egg-white mixture. Then dip each piece in the coating mixture. Make sure each piece is well coated.
  5. Place on the baking sheet. When all of your chicken has been coated and your backing sheet is full, place in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden.
