- Prep Time:
- Cook Time:
- Ready Time:
- one large boneless skinless chicken breast
- one egg beaten
- 2 cups panko bread crumbs
- kosher salt and pepper
Start by cutting your chicken breast into the same size cubes about 1/2 inch square. Now set up one bowl with the beaten egg and one with seasoned panko bread crumbs. Now dip the chicken into the egg wash shake off eccess then into the panko bread crumbs and put on a tray to set for a few min. While they are setting lets make the sauce.
Combine the mayo, mustard and honey and blend well together and keep in the fridge until you are ready. Now there are two ways to cook the chicken, fried and baked. If you fry them correctly there wont be that much more fat than if you bake them and if you use good vegetable oil the fat is not going to be bad for you although it is calories its not hydrogenated fat calories.
preheat oven to 400 degrees and take some vegetable spray and give the nuggets a little coating of oil before you put them in. This will make them nicer color and give them a little more moisture. Bake in the oven until golden brown about 10 min. Take out, and serve with the dipping sauce.
Heat some vegetable oil in a a fryer or a frying pan to 375 degrees and fry until golden brown, drain on a paper towel.
Serve the dipping sauce in a little bowel and drizzle some chili oil for some heat if you like.
