Gluten-Free Party Chicken Nuggets



Chicken nuggets are a top choice for children of all ages. There's no need to pull out the deep fryer for this recipe. Simply shake and bake. Let the kids choose from a variety of dips, such as honey, barbecue sauce or mustard. These tasty nuggets can be made without dairy with good results.

8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into nugget-size pieces (about 6 pieces
    per breast)
1 cup plain yogurt or nondairy yogurt or enough olive oil to coat
1 cup cornmeal
2 cups gluten-free cornflake crumbs
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon ground pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a sheet pan.

2. Coat the chicken pieces with yogurt or olive oil.

3. Place cornmeal, cornflakes and spices in a Ziploc bag. Seal and shake to thoroughly combine ingredients.

4. Place coated chicken in cornmeal mixture. Seal the bag and shake to completely cover all the pieces with crumbs.

5. Place breaded chicken pieces on prepared sheet pan. Bake in preheated oven until cooked through, about 15 to 25 minutes depending on the size of the chicken pieces.

6. Serve warm with a gluten-free dipping sauce.

Need one without corn. My baby girl is allergic to wheat, corn, and peanuts. Thankfully she isn't allergic to dairy. Keeping my fingers crossed that she grows out of this.

They look yummy but I will try to find non - gmo corn organic corn flakes and bake them instead of using canola which is gmo too. They sound great. My grandsons will love them.

These are wonderful, and even the non-GF family members love them. As I am always TRYING to add calories for my little guy, we dip in egg, coat, dip and coat again, then deep fry in canola or sunflower oil in our deep fryer. They are perfect with homemade fries, and real meat, too!
