Honey Dipped Crunchy Chicken Nuggets

I have to say my kids LOVE these nuggets.... they are so much better than shop bought nuggets for sure.

For the extra crunchiness this recipe calls for using Cornflake crumbs, which can be bought in the supermarket or you can crush some Cornflakes using your blender. Normally breadcrumbs can be used but they are not as crunchy.

Quite easy to prepare, which is always a good thing, knowing that they are homemade and full of good ingredients makes the little effort required well worth it.

Honey Dipped Crunchy Chicken Nuggets
(recipe adapted from WW Secrets of Success)

Serves: 10
Points per serve: 3

cooking spray
1 tablespoon honey
1 eggwhite, lightly beaten
1 kg chicken fillets
1 cup Cornflake crumbs

Preheat oven to 200 deg C.

Line a baking tray with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.

In a large bowl mix together the egg white and honey. Add chicken pieces and toss in the mixture. Place in a colander over a sink or bowl and allow excess to drain.

Place cornflake crumbs in a bowl. Roll chicken pieces in crumbs, one at a time ensuring they are fully coated and place on baking tray.

Lightly spray with oil and bake in the oven for 8 - 10 minutes or until cooked.

Serve with Honey Mustard Mayonnaise.
