These spicy chicken nuggets take the mess out of wings but still bring the heat. Bran cereal and low-fat chips add a signifcant amount of crunch without creating excess calories.
- 8 Ounces boneless, skinless lean chicken breast, cut into 10 pieces
- 1/4 Cup bran cereal, ground into breadcrumbs
- 20 barbecue Popchips, or any low-fat barbecue-flavored chip
- 3 Tablespoons Frank's Red Hot Sauce
- Dash of onion powder
- Dash of garlic powder
- Dash of cayenne
- Dash of black pepper
- Dash of salt
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Crush the Popchips completely and, in a small dish, mix with the cereal crumbs. Add the seasonings and mix well. Place the chicken pieces in a separate dish, and toss with the hot sauce. Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray. Give each chicken piece a shake (so it's not dripping with hot sauce), and then coat it evenly with the crumb mixture. Lay the battered nuggets on the baking pan. Place in the oven, and bake for 10 minutes. Then flip the wings over, and return them to the oven for 10 more minutes, or until outsides are crispy and chicken is cooked throughout.
