1 ½ lb chicken breast, boneless, skinless

1 cup corn flake crumbs or Italian bread crumbs

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking dish or cookie sheet, set aside.

2. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces.

3. Place corn flakes in a plastic bag and crush them into crumbs.

4. Add paprika, Italian herb seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder to the crushed corn flakes. Close the bag and shake well. If you have kids, this is a great way to get them involved by letting them crush up the corn flakes.

5. Add a few pieces of chicken at a time to the crumb mixture. Shake to coat evenly.

6. Arrange coated nuggets on the cookie sheet so they are not touching. Bake until golden brown, about 12-14 minutes

1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped

1 lb chicken breast, boneless, skinless, cut into strips

½ cup carrots, peeled and sliced thin or ½ can (about 8 ounces) of low-sodium carrots, drained
