Low-Cal Crispy Chicken Nuggets with Cilantro Ranch Dressing

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside. Cut chicken into 1 1/2-inch pieces. In a plastic bag combine flour, chili powder, and salt. Add chicken pieces, a few at a time, shaking to coat.
  2. In a shallow dish combine eggs and milk. Place panko in another shallow dish. Dip chicken pieces into egg mixture, then into panko, turning to coat and pressing crumbs to adhere. Place in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake about 12 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (180 degrees F for thigh meat, 170 degrees F for breast meat). Serve chicken nuggets with Cilantro Ranch Dressing.
