92% less fat • 73% less sodium than the original recipe. If fast food or frozen chicken nuggets are your go-to food for busy nights, switch to this feel-good version. They only take 30 minutes total and are amazingly low in fat and calories!

Ingredients

1
cup crushed toasted whole wheat flake cereal
1
teaspoon paprika
1/2
teaspoon garlic powder
1/2
teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/8
teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1
egg white
1
pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 450°F. In a resealable plastic bag, combine crushed cereal, paprika, garlic powder, oregano, and, if desired, cayenne pepper. In a small bowl, beat egg white with a fork.
  • 2 Dip chicken pieces into egg white, allowing excess to drip off. Add chicken pieces, a few at a time, to cereal mixture in bag; shake to coat well.
  • 3 Place chicken pieces in a single layer in an ungreased shallow baking pan. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F).
