Healthy and yummy kid friendly recipe!

I have yet to meet a kid who doesn’t like chicken nuggets. Unfortunately, it’s usually not the healthiest option – loaded with processed carbs and sodium. This is my recipe for a healthier version of chicken nuggets that you can make pretty easily and quickly at home.

Ingredients:

  1. 2 large chicken breasts cut into 1.5 pieces/cubes
  2. 2.5 tablespoons of honey
  3. 1 egg
  4. pinch of salt
  5. pinch of pepper
  6. 1 cup almond floor or sliced almonds crushed up with food processor
  7. Pam or other cooking spray

Instructions:

  1. In a medium bowl whisk together salt, pepper, honey and 1 egg
  2. Place almond flour or crushed almonds in another bowl
  3. Preheat oven to 350
  4. Spray frying pan with pam and heat it
  5. Dip each piece of chicken into the honey and egg mixture and then dip into the almond flour to coat it well
  6. Place chicken pieces on frying pan on medium heat and cook on each side for 2 min (to give it that nice golden look)
  7. Spray a baking pan with pam and transfer chicken to the baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes. The almond flour and honey gives it a nice sort of sweet flavor. Serve with whatever you want, but stay tuned for next week’s recipe which will be for healthy “fries”.
