Everybody loves Chicken
What a sleepy morning! I can tell its going to be a two coffee day already and I've only been here for 15 minutes. Any who- I love chicken. If prepared right, it is delicious and healthy! I am always looking for good chicken recipes because I feel like you really can't get sick of them! Last night I made some delicious oven baked BBQ chicken nuggets. I found a recipe online and modified it a lot to get the flavor I was looking for and was very happy with the outcome. When I was younger, my mom(see picture) always made this paprika flavored chicken that was ridiculously delicious... I think this has a little of that flavor mixed with BBQ.
Baked BBQ Chicken Nuggets:
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon pepper (or desired amount)
2 teaspoons paprika (or desired amount)
1 pound (or so) boneless chicken breasts with fat removed
Your favorite BBQ sauce
-Preheat oven to 425
-Cut chicken into nugget sized pieces- try to make them all somewhat even
-Mix flour, pepper and paprika
-Roll and completely cover chicken with flour- place chicken on a baking sheet covered in NON STICK Aluminum foil
-Drizzle chicken with a small amount of Olive Oil
-Bake for 7 or 8 minutes, turn chicken and bake for an additional 7 or 8 minutes
-Glaze chicken with BBQ sauce- cook 2 minutes
-Turn chicken and glaze other side with BBQ sauce- cook 2 minutes.
Enjoy! Serve with vegetables and fruit.
