Tasty baked chicken nuggets with a crispy quinoa coating – so easy and healthy!

Ingredients

  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees and grease a baking sheet. In a small bowl whisk flour, salt, and pepper. In a second bowl whisk eggs and water. Place quinoa in a third bowl.
  • Dredge chicken pieces in flour mixture, then eggs, and lastly in the quinoa being sure to coat well. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Spray chicken nuggets generously with cooking spray (this helps the nuggets to get crispy but can be skipped if you prefer) and bake for 15-20 minutes until nuggets are cooked through and browned. Serve with your favorite dipping sauces such as bbq sauce, ketchup, sweet and sour sauce, etc.
