Crunchy Chicken Nuggets

Fast, delicious, and easy!  What more could you want?  The coating stays nice and crunchy, even for leftovers.  Recipe from Kellogg’s.  Linking up with Women Who Do It All.


-2 egg whites

-1 Tbsp water

-2.5 cups Rice Krispies cereal, crushed (I use my hands to mush it up a little bit but still keep them mostly in tact)

-1.5 tsp paprika

-1 tsp seasoned salt (I use Lawry’s)

-1/8 tsp garlic powder

-1/8 tsp onion powder

-1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1.5 inch pieces

-1 Tbsp butter, melted


1.  In a shallow dish, combine egg whites and water.  In another shallow dish, combine Rice Krispies, paprika, seasoned salt, garlic powder and onion powder.  I use pans for my mixtures as you can see below.  I also spray the pan I use to cook them on with a little oil before placing the nuggets on it.

3.  Bake at 450 degrees about 12 minutes or until no longer pink in center.
