Chicken Nuggets

Serves 2

Carbs per serve - 1g 

  • 2 small, boneless chicken breasts
  • cajun seasonings
  • lemon pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely crushed pork crackle
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream or mayonnaise
Cut the chicken breasts into nugget-sized chunks. Alternatively, you could cut them into strips or just use pre-cut chicken tenders. Sprinkle well with the cajun seasonings and lemon pepper. Allow the chicken to sit for a couple of hours for the flavors to penetrate the chicken.

In a pie plate, combine the pork crakle, Parmesan cheese, onion powder, Italian seasonings, and lemon pepper. Stir well. In another pie plate beat the egg with heavy cream. Dip chicken pieces into the egg mixture, then roll in the crumbs.

Arrange the chicken in a Pam-sprayed baking dish, or place them on a cookie sheet that you've lined with non-stick foil. Bake at 180 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes.
