Easy to make and much healthier than the salt and preservative laden chicken nuggets you'll find in the freezer section, these crunchy nuggets will have both kids and adults vying for more.
Serves: 4
  1. In a shallow bowl combine first 6 ingredients.
  2. In a second shallow bowl mix egg with a fork.
  3. In a third shallow bowl (pie plates work well for this job!) add arrowroot flour.
  4. Cut chicken into similar sized pieces about 2" x 1" (or whatever works for you) and put into a paper towel lined bowl.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  6. If you've enlisted your kids to help, line everyone up in front of a bowl or, if you've got no volunteers, you'll have to go it alone.
  7. Coat chicken pieces lightly with flour.
  8. Dip the arrowroot flour coated chicken piece(s) into the egg. Coat lightly with egg and transfer into the cornflake bowl.
  9. Coat with cornflake mixture and place on greased cookie sheet.
  10. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until juices run clear
  11. Enjoy immediately!
*Please note that Trader Joe's corn flakes are NOT gluten free. They contain barley malt extract. :-(
