Chicken Nuggets

Now here is a recipe that I wished I used before going gluten free. Chicken nuggets are a staple for kids these days, but have you ever read the ingredients on the package? Or tried the frozen GF version that the bread falls off of when microwaving. Not to mention the cost. This is such an easy, natural, and tasty way to make chicken nuggets that even an adult can enjoy. I'd keep this recipe handy for those nights when you are stumped, because it is so quick and takes so few ingredients.

3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
3/4 cup gluten free bread crumbs (I like to use the Italian seasoned for more flavor)
1 egg
Canola Oil

Preheat a large skillet pan on med high. Add 2 tbsp of Canola oil, enough to coat the bottom of the pan. Cut chicken into 1 inch cubes. Dip cubes into the egg, then roll in the bread crumbs. I get a little lazy and use 1 large bowl to mix it all together. Pan fry them for approximately 5 minutes turning them half way through. Place cooked nuggets on a paper towel and sprinkle with parmesean cheese.

Need something to dip those tasty nuggets in? Try Some Dude's Fry Sauce. It's gluten free and Costco has a great deal on the giant size bottle. If you can't find it try making your own by mixing mayo and bbq sauce or ketchup.
