Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets

Recipe by  

"My 2-year-old was diagnosed with Celiac. After experimenting with several failed chicken nugget recipes, I finally came up with one the whole family loves. This is a mild-tasting chicken nugget, designed for a 2-year-old. Some additional seasoning added to the Chex® should give it a more 'grown up' flavor."

Directions

  1. Blend cereal in a blender or food processor until it has the consistency of bread crumbs; pour into a bowl.
  2. Beat eggs in a separate bowl until smooth. Pour rice flour into a third bowl.
  3. Dredge chicken pieces in the rice flour, dip in beaten egg, and then press into the cereal to coat. Keep breaded chicken on a large plate until all are finished, but do not stack.
  4. Pour enough oil into a large skillet to just cover the bottom and heat over medium-high heat.
  5. Cook chicken nuggets in hot oil until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 2 to 3 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Good recipe foundation here.. I used Rice Chex because that is what I had on hand and I made it the consistency of panko crumbs. I seasoned the chicken pieces with salt and pepper before coating. I also seasoned the crumbs with a few spices. The recipe might turn out a little bland if there was no seasoning. The pieces came out super crispy and it was delightful. The kids really liked it too!
