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
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 cups (more or less) of Rice Krispies, crunched

Step One:
Slice Chicken breast, pat dry with paper towel and set aside.

Step Two:
Wisp peanut butter, egg, milk and salt and pepper together until creamy smooth.

Step Three:
Place flour in a bag or dish, sprinkle with a small amount of salt and pepper (optional), mix. Dredge chicken in flour.

Step Four:
Dip floured chicken in peanut butter mixture and cover in Rice Krispies.

Step Five:
Butter the bottom of a baking pan and put chicken in it.

Step Six:
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!
