Crunchy Chicken Nuggets with Honey-Mustard Sauce
This crunchy chicken nuggets recipe is perfect for getting kids who love the fast-food version- but it is much healthier (baked not fried!), has a great crunchy coating and a delicious flavor that even adults will love!
For the Nuggets:
  • 1 lb of boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons of your favorite BBQ sauce (our family loves Kraft Original BBQ)
  • ½ teaspoon each of garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and salt
  • 3 cups of cornflakes
For the Honey-Mustard Dipping Sauce:
  • ½ cup of mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of spicy mustard (we use Grey Poupon)
Prepare the crunchy chicken nuggets:
  1. Place the cut-up chicken breasts into a medium-sized mixing bowl and then add in the BBQ sauce and spices. Mix it well so that all of the chicken pieces are evenly coated in sauce and spice.
  2. Place the cornflakes into a ziptop bag, and using a rolling pin, crush the cornflakes into teeny-tiny pieces. In batches, place your chicken pieces into the cornflakes bag and shake well to coat the chicken.
  3. Lay out chicken pieces in rows onto a sheet pan covered in non-stick aluminum foil and bake in a 375-degree oven for 20 minutes until golden brown.
Prepare the dipping sauce:
  1. Mix all together in a small bowl until combined.
