These are some fancy chicken nuggets!
Crunchy, flavorful, and super easy. These are basically a gluten free shake n bake.
My 3 year old said they were better than the ones from the store...
I'll take the complement!
Gluten Free Pretzel Crusted Chicken Nuggets
2 cups Gluten Free pretzels
1 T. bacon bits
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 T. dried parsley flakes
1/2 cup ginger ale (Canada Dry is my fav and is gluten free)
1/3 cup flour or cornstarch
1 t. paprika
1/4 t. ginger
1/4 t. pepper
2-3 chicken breasts, cut into nugget size pieces
Place the pretzels, bacon bits, cheese, and parsley in a food processor; cover and process until coarsely chopped. Transfer to a shallow bowl.
In another bowl, whisk the egg, ginger ale, flour and spices. Dip pieces in the ginger ale mixture, place in a gallon size bag. Add the pretzel mixture and shake to coat. Place chicken in a 9x13 pan coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes or until juices run clear.
