Here’s a delicious way to add nutrition and use up some cereal to make tasty homemade baked chicken nuggets.


3 c. multigrain Cheerios cereal, crushed

1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, grated

1/2 tsp. seasoned salt

1/4 tsp. paprika

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted

1 Tbsp. milk

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1- to 1 1/2-inch-square pieces)


Heat oven to 400 F. Line cookie sheet with foil. In medium bowl, stir together crushed cereal, cheese, seasoned salt, paprika and garlic powder. In small bowl, stir together melted butter and milk. Dip chicken into butter mixture, then roll in cereal mixture to coat evenly. Place on cookie sheet. Bake nine minutes; turn nuggets over. Bake about eight minutes longer or until coating is light golden brown and chicken has reached 165 F.
