These tasty nuggets are crispy but low in fat because they are baked and not fried! Made with all white meat (as opposed to the usual fillers), they make a healthy fast-food alternative. Serve with ketchup, barbecue sauce or a low-fat ranch dressing mixed with plain yogurt.
Makes 4 servings
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp paprika 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 egg white
1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 cup cornflakes, crushed
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare three bowls: one with flour and seasonings, one with egg white and buttermilk stirred together, and one with crushed cornflakes. Cut chicken breasts into 1- to 1 1/2-inch pieces. Place chicken pieces into bowl and roll in flour mixture. Then, piece by piece, shake off excess flour, dip the chicken into the milk mixture, then coat the pieces with cornflakes. Place chicken on baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes until golden, turning them halfway through.
