Recipe Ingredients for Cornmeal-Crusted Chicken Nuggets with Blackberry Mustard

3/4 cup fresh blackberries or raspberries, finely chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons Whole Grain Mustard Sauce
1 teaspoons honey
1/2 pound Fresh Chicken Breast Tenders
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons cornmeal
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

Recipe Directions for Cornmeal-Crusted Chicken Nuggets with Blackberry Mustard

  1. Mash blackberries (or raspberries), mustard and honey in a small bowl until it looks like a chunky sauce.

  2. Sprinkle chicken tenders with salt and pepper. Place cornmeal in a medium bowl, add the chicken and toss to coat (discard any leftover cornmeal).

  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook the chicken, turning once or twice, until browned and just cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes total (thinner nuggets will cook faster than thicker ones). Serve the chicken nuggets with the berry mustard.
