“Not Fried” Chicken Nuggets





Who doesn’t love chicken nuggets? They are, of course, addictively tasty. But if there’s one downside to chicken nuggets, it’s that they’re often fried, which means that they can be a bit greasy. If you’re aiming to eat a little healthier, but you’d still like to make some chicken strips, then you might enjoy making some of our baked chicken nuggets. Our nuggets, which you prepare by baking, are light and relatively healthy. They also feature some unique ingredients, such as Greek yogurt, which helps to add some unique but enjoyable flavors to the mix. The recipe makes for six servings, and they also work well when paired with our Cabot Spicy BBQ Yogurt Dip. You can make these for lunch, or if you have children, you can also make these for dinner too. If you happen to know someone who loves chicken nuggets, then feel free to share this recipe with them on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter.

In the mood for some baked chicken nuggets? To make our recipe, go ahead and assemble the following ingredients: three large, boneless and skinless chicken breast halves, a cup of Cabot Greek Yogurt, three cups of gluten-free cereal, ground cumin, a teaspoon of ground red pepper, a large pinch of salt and ground black pepper, cooking spray and some honey for dipping (or our spicy BBQ dip, whichever you prefer). You can start preparing the nuggets by dicing the chicken breasts into nugget-sized pieces. Place the chicken into a bowl and add enough Greek yogurt to coat the chicken. Refrigerate the mixture for a half hour, then add in the cumin, red pepper and salt and black pepper, and coat completely. Remove the chicken from the yogurt and spices, and dredge them in some crushed up cereal. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes.
