Homemade Chicken Nuggets

I made baked chicken "nuggets" for lunch today, and they came out really good, so I thought I'd share the recipe!

3 boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite size chunks
1 egg
1 cup fresh whole wheat bread crumbs
1 cup crushed cornflakes
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. parsley

Beat the egg in a bowl with about 1/2 cup of water. Drop in the chicken chunks.
In another bowl, mix the bread crumbs, crushed cornflakes, salt, garlic powder, and parsley. ( I made my bread crumbs by putting a thick slice of dry homemade wheat bread in my blender )

Spray a baking sheet / jelly roll pan with cooking spray. Drop chicken into crumb mixture, a few at a time, and toss to coat. Move to baking sheet. Fill baking sheet, keeping pieces separated.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes.

They come out crusty on the outside and moist on the inside.... yummy! I served them with honey mustard dip and chunks of watermelon.

Thanks for the recipe...sounds yummy. I'm going to try this the next time that Adriana is here since I generally have all these ingredients on hand. Love to all, mom

Sounds good - but - watermelon??? Where did you get watermelon this time of year (we are craving some good watermelon !)
