Crispy Baked Chicken Nuggets


1 cup crushed toasted whole wheat flake cereal
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1 egg white
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces


Preheat oven to 450°F.

In a resealable plastic bag, combine crushed cereal, paprika, garlic powder, oregano, and, if desired, cayenne pepper.

In a small bowl, beat egg white with a fork. Dip chicken pieces into egg white, allowing excess to drip off. Add chicken pieces, a few at a time, to cereal mixture in bag; shake to coat well.

Place chicken pieces in a single layer in an ungreased shallow baking pan. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F).
