Ingredients

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts cubed (makes approximately 36 chicken nuggets)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons skim milk
  • 1 bag SunChips French Onion Chips crushed into tiny pieces
  • olive oil spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Place crushed SunChips in a shallow bowl and set aside (they may all not fit in one bowl, you may need to work in batches)
  • Whisk together egg and milk in a separate shallow bowl, set aside.
  • Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  • Dip each cube of chicken into the egg mixture and then immediately into the chips. Use your fingers to press the chicken into the chips, coating completely on all sides. Set on the baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the chicken, leaving space between each nugget on the baking sheet.
  • Lightly spray the nuggets with olive oil spray.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown.
  • Serve with your favorite dipping sauces and enjoy!
  • **Note: Nuggets can be frozen in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to one month. Heat in the microwave or oven when ready to serve.
