Recipe by Lacy Thon
"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

bite-size corn square cereal (such as Corn Chex®)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-size pieces
oil for frying, or as needed
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!
kids liked it and it was easy, what more could i ask for?
By far the best chicken nuggets we've had. Definitely a family favorite. Loved the crunch!
We used gluten free bread crumbs instead of cereal, and everyone in the family was in LOVE with this fun "kid friendly" meal. My husband added a little Cajun seasoning to the flour mix for one breast's worth of nuggets. The extra pop of flavor made this an "adult friendly" treat, too!
I use the gluten free brown rice flour to coat the chicken and fry in either grape seed oil or olive oil. Delicious!
The first time we made this we had some gluten-free bread crumbs we wanted to use; everyone loved it. I also used a basic gluten-free flour blend instead of plain rice flour. This time we followed the recipe using Corn Chex and they liked it even more (if that is somehow possible). I left the Chex in the bag and crushed it with a rolling pin instead of the processor. Such a nice tasty nugget and the gluten version is not missed!
my 6 yr old was just diagnosed with Celiac and this is our new favorite recipe! hope to find a lot more like this
