Healthy Kids Chicken Nuggets Recipe
Preheat oven to 400°.
Cut chicken into 1-1/2 -inch pieces. In a bowl combine flour, paprika, pepper and salt. Roll chicken pieces in the flour mixture to cover on all sides, shaking off excess flour. Set aside.
In a small bowl lightly beat egg whites and buttermilk. In another bowl, place the cornflakes. Dip each chicken piece into egg mixture then coat with cornflakes, covering completely.
Place a wire rack on top of a baking sheet. Arrange chicken pieces in a single layer on rack. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until golden. Serve with ketchup or honey mustard, if desired.
