Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets

Would loooove to make these yummy healthy chicken nuggets (Edit: actually now that I think about it, I have made something similar aaages ago). High protein, low carb and low fat. MmMmMmMmm :):)


Servings: 4 • Serving Size: 1/4th of nuggets • Old Points: 4 pts • Points+: 4 pts
Calories: 164.9 • Fat: 4.6 g • Protein: 22.1 g • Carb: 7.7 g • Fiber: 0.9 g Sugar: 0.1 g

  • 16 oz (2 large) skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into even bit sized pieces
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 6 tbsp whole wheat Italian seasoned breadcrumbs (I use Masterfoods Italian Herb Mix then just sprinkle that on plain breadcrumbs)
  • 2 tbsp panko
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • olive oil spray 

Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray. 

Put the olive oil in one bowl and the breadcrumbs, panko and parmesan cheese in another.

Season chicken with salt and pepper, then put in the bowl with the olive oil and mix well so the olive oil evenly coats all of the chicken.

Put a few chunks of chicken at a time into the breadcrumb mixture to coat, then on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the top with olive oil spray then bake 8 - 10 minutes. Turn over then cook another 4 - 5 minutes or until cooked though.
