Healthy Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets

I love healthy chicken recipes, especially ones as quick and easy as this.  Please use organic chicken to ensure you aren’t filling your bodies with unnecessary antibodies, toxins and chemicals.

These are so simple to make for the kids (and adults too).  There aren’t any bread crumbs in these, just all healthy, clean ingredients.  I make a bunch of these at once and freeze them to take out and reheat for a quick weeknight meal.  The kiddies have no clue that they are eating tons of fiber, antioxidants, protein and omega-3-fatty-acids.  Shhhhhh…… I won’t tell if you won’t tell ;)

    I’m wondering how many servings would you say this serves? I’m trying to get weight watchers points for my tracking and I made these before I joined and loved them! Thanks for these!

      That would be difficult to say, maybe take not when you are cutting the breasts as to how many nuggets per breast? Then 1 breast would equal one serving, I would guess that 3 or 4 nuggets would equal one breast. Thank you so much, so glad you liked them!

    Seems like a wonderful recipe and I can’t wait to try it! Out of curiosity, do you freeze them before or after you bake them?

      Hi Candice! I freeze them after I bake them. It’s a healthier alternative to those frozen chicken nuggets at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by :)
