Buffalo Chicken nuggets, are basically healthy and after I made them Saturday, I remembered why I don’t make them often, they’re addicting. Every time I walked by the refrigerator, I have one or two….That makes them not so healthy. Oh well! Pair them with a salad and some fresh-cut fries makes a great dinner that’s not too bad for you, plus you can cook the fries and the nuggets at the same time, so everything’s done a the same time!
Cube up a pound of chicken breast
mix up the breading ingredients
Bread your chicken and put them on a sheet pan
Cut up a couple of potatoes, drizzle with olive oil & chili powder and put the fries in while the oven heats up, and when it comes up to 425 add the chicken, flip the fries when you add the chicken, flip the chicken after about 8 to 10 minutes and shake your fries. Then bake an additional 5 to 7 minutes or until the chicken is done and the fries have browned.
Bake Buffalo Chicken Nuggets
1 lb. chicken breast, cut into small pieces
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. paprika
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup plain Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup Hot sauce (I use Franks)
2 tsp. olive oil
2 to 3 large potatoes, cut into fries
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
salt & pepper
1 TBSP olive oil
Toss potatoes with olive oil, salt, pepper and chili powder, then place on a sheet pan. Put pan in the oven and turn oven on to 425 degrees, They will cook while it’s heating up to save you some time.
In a bowl combine hot sauce, olive oil, chicken breast and season with salt & pepper, toss everything together and set aside. In a medium bowl combine garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, both bread crumbs and season with salt and pepper. Dip chicken into breading and place a sheet pan with a silpat liner or on a greased sheet pan. When the oven reaches 425 degrees, flip potatoes and put the chicken in the oven with the potatoes. When the chicken has cooked for 8 to 10 minutes, turn chicken and shake the fry pan around to toss them. Bake for another 5 to 8 minutes. Serve when the chicken it done and the fries have browned. You can broil the fries for a few minutes to make them browner. Serve with ranch dressing.
