The secret to these chicken nuggets is that they're baked, not fried. Crispy on the outside yet succulent on the inside, these white meat chicken nuggets make a healthy fast-food alternative. Serve with ketchup, barbecue sauce or a fat free ranch dressing. Or simply combine a 1/4 cup of honey and a 1/4 cup of mustard for your very own honey-mustard sauce. By Fiona Haynes, About.com

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
