Homemade chicken nuggets

These are super easy to make and very yummy.  I originally got the recipe from my sister-in-law over at Gluten Free For Jen.  We've made a few changes to it though.

Here's what you'll need:
      cookie sheet(we normally use 2)
      boneless skinless chicken breasts--we cut them up into cubes that are approximately 2inches by
      1-1/2 cups gluten free flour mix(can use bisquick or just a blend of flour--I use my flour mix which
            is made up of brown rice flour, amaranth, millet, and teff flours, to this I add 2 tsp baking soda
            and a pinch of sugar for this recipe.)
     1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
      2 Tb garlic herb seasoning(I use Tones brand and love it!  Buy it in the huge container at Sam's and
            use it on lots of things)
     4 eggs

Scramble up the eggs.  Mix the parmesan, herb seasoning and flour mixture all together.  Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil(optional--I don't use the foil) and spray with a nonstick cooking spray(make sure to check as not all are gluten free). Place the chickend pieces in the egg mixture, into the flour mixture-roll around to coat well.  You then can dip back into the eggs and recoat in the flour, but you don't have to .  My kids like it better with one coating of flour.  Place on the cookie sheet and bake at 450 degrees until done(12-14 minutes, turn once at 6 minutes to prevent overdoing one side).

Serve and enjoy!  We like to eat these with our homemade french fries, fresh fruit with yogurt and a nice lettuce salad.

    I've loved chicken nuggets since I was little. I'm going to try this recipe out tomorrow!

  2. I think these look great and are much better for you than store bought. I am going to try these.

  3. With six girls and 1 boy we-- love things that are like this, and would be as costly as the ones you buy in the store, and much better for you-- I appreciated this recipe -- will be trying this soon

  4. Sounds like a fun recipe to make with the kids although I hate to admit that I've never heard of amaranth, millet, or teff!

  5. Soooo much better than a fast food chain!!

  6. Yes! I love how I can add more or less parmesan if I want. Thanks for sharing!

  7. these look great! cant wait to try them! do they freeze well... if so, how do you reheat them?
