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 😉
Check out just how easy they are to make…
Healthy Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets
- 1 pound organic skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
- 3/4 cup ground flax seed
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon basil
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 2 eggs
In a medium bowl, place flax seed, chia seeds, Parmesan cheese, salt, oregano, basil and garlic. Mix well.
In another separate medium bowl, place eggs and mix well.
Line up the bowls and place each piece of chicken into egg mixture, then flax/chia mixture. Lay onto prepared baking sheet until all the chicken is used.
Discard any remaining egg or flax mixtures.
Cook chicken for 25 minutes or until cooked through, making sure to turn over once halfway through. Serve immediately.
