Crunchy Whole-Grain Chicken Bites

Hudson LOVES chicken nuggets and when I saw this recipe in my new Pampered Chef cookbook I thought I would give it a try. I am SO GLAD I did...these are FANTASTIC!!! Kelly couldn't quit saying how much he liked them too. They are really light and super crunchy...easy to make too! Seriously, go get the stuff and make these tonight...you won't regret it!


Crunchy Whole-Grain Chicken Bites

  • 1 pound chicken tenders (I used breasts)

  • Dry ranch dressing mix

  • 1 egg white

  • 6 cups whole-grain chips (I used Sun Chips)

  • 1/4 tsp paprika

  • Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400. Cut chicken into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Whisk together 1 tbsp dry ranch dressing mix and egg white. Crush chips in a resealable plastic bag and add paprika and shake well. Add half of the chicken to egg white mixture; mix well to coat.

Put the chicken in the crumb mixture; shake to coat with crumbs and arrange in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining coated chicken and crumbs. Spray the chicken with cooking spray. Bake 14 - 16 minutes or until chicken is golden brown and centers are no longer pink. Yum!!! These are REALLY good. Enjoy! :)
