Healthy Chicken Nuggets

Baked, Easy to make, Healthy

Spanish Version

I’m an only child, however I grew up really close to my cousins, one of them, the closest to my age has two kids, the first one a boy named Asier being the first child and for his mother’s “Practicity” he got used to have for meal “chicken and fries” and chicken for him means nuggets.

Even when the frozen nuggets have an arguably protein content, the caloric content and nutrient quality doesn’t seems for me as the most suitables for kids, or grown ups for that matter.

When Asier comes home to visit he have this nuggets and enjoy them without a doubt, in fact he loves them, they are really easy to make and much more healthy.

Yield: 4 portions

INGREDIENTS

1 lb Skinless boneless chicken breast
1 beat ended eggs
1/2 cup sesame seeds
2 Tbsp mustard seeds

PREPARATION

Over a piece of foil paper or wax paper put the ground chicken and form a cilinder sausage, the diameter of it will be the size of your nuggets.

Put the chicken on the freezer for at least one hour until is firm enough to be able to cut it without loosing shape.

Preheat the oven on 350 °F

Set the a baking sheet with foil paper

On 1 small bowl beat the egg in a separate bowl mix the seeds

Slice the cilinder on not so thick portions (max. Half and inch)

Pass each nugget over the egg and then pass it over the seeds until it’s completely cover, if needs more pass again on eggs and seeds.

Put each nugget on the oven sheet, once done bake for 20 minutes or until reaching at least 165 °F inside

Let them cool and serve with your favorite dressing.
