Easy, Guilt-free Chicken Nuggets!

These little and lite chicken nuggets make a great quick snack!  

What you'll need:

- Chicken cutlets
- panko (japanese bread crumbs)
- egg
- seasonings

What to do:

Preheat your oven to 375.

Cut chicken cutlets into bite size pieces (or leave as chicken fingers).  Set aside two bowls: one with egg whites and one with the panko.  In the panko bowl, mix in any other seasonings you would like on your chicken.  I used basil, salt, pepper, and a bit of spicy chicken seasoning.   Dip chicken pieces in the egg white and the coat with the panko mix.   Panko is great and I suggest you keep some in your cubbard if you do not already.  It's a crispy, light Japanese type bread crumb that can be used in place of breading for any recipe!  Place coated chicken pieces on a wired rack placed on top of an oven pan.  I juse used the rack from my toaster oven and it worked great!  Lightly spray chicken with a light vegetable oil spray so the bits can get extra crunchy!  Let bake for 15 minutes and then, using tongs, flip pieces over.  Bake for another 5 or so minutes.  Eat with your fav dips!

Easy, guilt-free, and delicious!
