Recipe Ingredients for Protein - Chicken: Corn-crusted chicken nuggets (Gluten-Free)

1 pound chicken tenders, cut in half crosswise (see Tip)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons cornmeal
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (120 cal.)

Recipe Directions for Protein - Chicken: Corn-crusted chicken nuggets (Gluten-Free)

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

  2. 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.

  3. Tips & Notes: Chicken tenders are the lean strips of rib meat typically found attached to the underside of chicken breasts. They can also be purchased separately. Four 1-ounce tenders will yield a 3-ounce cooked portion. Tenders are perfect for quick stir-fries, chicken satay or kid-friendly breaded ?chicken nuggets.?
