Lime-licious Chicken Nuggets

Hi everyone!

Happy New year! My apologies for not blogging for so long! It's been a hectic (but wonderful) 2 month for Derek and I. I have now 4 more posts that will go up in the next week, so I hope that will make up for the lack of postings last month.

First up, chicken nuggets with a twist! This dish was simple but delicious, and pretty quick to whip up. Enjoy!

What you will need:

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
1 cup cornflake crumbs
1.5 tbsp grated lime zest
1 tsp sugar
1.5 tsp salt
0.5 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/3 cup lime juice
Cooking spray

  1. Preheat over to 425F. Cut chicken into nugget sizes
  2. Combine cornflake crumbs, lime zest, sugar, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl or plate
  3. Measure lime juice into another shallow bowl
  4. Dip chicken pieces into lime juice, then roll in crumb mixture, place on a greased baking sheet
  5. spray rolled chicken with small amounts of cooking spray
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked and no longer pink inside
  7. Cool nuggets on paper towel and enjoy!

These 'nugs' were so darn good. So good that your last instruction is impossible to follow - I simply cannot wait to have them cool on a paper towel...

Yummy, yummy, yummy, good food in my tummy.

Oh yum again! Easy and oven-baked instead of fried. Love it.
