Peanut Butter Chicken Nuggets,
- 1 chicken breast, sliced
- 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1 egg
- 1/2-1 cup of flour
- 3 cups (more or less) of Rice Krispies, crunched
Slice Chicken breast, pat dry with paper towel and set aside.
Wisp peanut butter, egg, milk and salt and pepper together until creamy smooth.
Place flour in a bag or dish, sprinkle with a small amount of salt and pepper (optional), mix. Dredge chicken in flour.
Dip floured chicken in peanut butter mixture and cover in Rice Krispies.
Butter the bottom of a baking pan and put chicken in it.
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees until cooked thoroughly. Turn halfway through.
I feel like these are healthier than other chicken nuggets because they are baked and not fried. Also you get an extra boost of protein from all the peanut butter!
