Healthy, baked chicken nuggets with a little kick! I took my Healthy Baked Chicken Nugget recipe and and added a touch of spice!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder (use ground cayenne to make it hotter)
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 6 tbsp whole wheat Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup panko
  • olive oil spray (I used my Misto)
  • 2 tbsp Frank's Hot Sauce (or Tabasco if you want it HOT)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lb skinless chicken breast (cut into 40 small bite sized pieces)
  • 4 celery stalks (trimmed to 4 inch strips)
  • optional: 1/2 cup skinny blue cheese dressing (additional points)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray.
  • Combine garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, black pepper, bread crumbs and panko in a medium bowl and toss well.
  • Place the hot sauce in another medium bowl with the oil.
  • Dip the chicken into the hot sauce mix, then into the crumbs and place on the baking sheet.
  • Spray the top generously with olive oil spray then bake 8 - 10 minutes. Turn over then cook another 4 - 5 minutes or until cooked though.
  • Serve with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing if desired.
