It’s Spicy Chicken!!!!

Yummy and not too spicy!

We have been looking for a recipe for baked chicken nuggets for quite some time. We have finally discovered one!

It started with some spicy cheese balls that Child #2 decided we’re too salty and tasteless. I am not one to waste food. Therefore, I had to find another way in which to use them.

Start crunching them up!!!

Crunching up the cheese balls and using them as a coating for chicken seemed logical. The first time we made the chicken, we used chicken tenders and it turned out great! The second time we used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. That was good too. So here’s the recipe:

You will need:

3 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken tenders or breasts

Dip in egg before dipping in the crumbs.

2 cups crushed, spicy cheese balls (measure after crushing!)

2 tsp. granulated onion

2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with your favorite gluten free cooking spray. With the crushed up spicy cheese balls, mix in the granulated onion. Dip chicken in egg and let excess drip off. Dip into the cheesey-onion crumb mixture. Place coated chicken on the prepared pan and continue coating the uncoated pieces until all are coated and on your pan.

Place pan in preheated oven and bake for 45 – 60 minutes or until chicken registers 165° F on a meat thermometer. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

  1. Sounds like a fun way to add zest to chicken! Bet it tastes great in a garlicky Tzatziki sauce!
