Paula Deen's Lean: Chicken Nuggets with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce
Chicken nuggets! Definitely a kid favorite and something adults enjoy just as well. However, as "grown-ups", we sometimes deny ourselves certain foods that we categorize as "For Kids Only". Well, not with this recipe!!
These chicken nuggets are healthy, baked and delicious. Paired with the right side, these nuggets make a great meal. Alone, they make a wonderful appetizer. I think I may have also found another addition to the Game Day menu!
CHICKEN NUGGETS WITH HONEY MUSTARD DIPPING SAUCE
6 Chicken breast fillets, cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
2 cups crushed BAKED LAY'S sour-cream-and-onion flavored chips
2 tablespoons FAT FREE or 1% milk
1 egg or egg substitute equivalent
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the crushed chips in a shallow dish. Beat together the egg and milk in a shallow bowl. Dip the chicken cubes into the egg mixture, then dredge in the chips. Place the chicken nuggets on a sprayed baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, on until golden brown. Chicken nuggets can be frozen after baking. Serve with your favorite sauce, such as ranch dressing or honey mustard.
3/4 cup HELLMAN'S LIGHT MAYONNAISE
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Horseradish, to taste
2 tablespoons orange juice
Combine all ingredients except orange juice; stir well. Thin to dipping consistency with orange juice. Cover and chill for at least one hour.
It was easy, healthy and fast. Everyone loved it and I will definitely make it again...soon! Next time, I may try using different flavored chips or just make a batch using plain BAKED LAY'S. Please give this recipe a try and let me know what you think. I would love to hear how you made this recipe work for you! ENJOY!
