Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 teaspoons salt divided
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper divided
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1-1/2 lbs chicken breasts patted dry, and cut into 1-in cubes
  • 3 cups breadcrumbs toasted
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 egg whites lightly beaten with 2 tablespoons water
  • HONEY MUSTARD DIP:
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F. Pour melted butter in the bottom of a large baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a shallow bowl, combine 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and flour. Dredge chicken in flour mixture, shaking off excess.
  • In a resealable plastic bag, combine toasted breadcrumbs, remaining 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper, paprika, and Parmesan. Whisk egg whites and 2 tablespoons water in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken pieces in egg white mixture, a few at a time, then transfer to breadcrumb bag, seal and shake until nuggets are coated. Repeat with remaining chicken and place chicken nuggets in a single layer on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake chicken nuggets at 425F 18-20 minutes, flipping nuggets once halfway through baking, until chicken is a deep golden brown.
  • Make the honey mustard dip: In a small bowl, whisk all dip ingredients until smooth. Serve with hot chicken nuggets. Enjoy!
