4 largish boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 c all purpose flour
2-3 eggs(may be omitted)
water and salt
*see bottom for gluten free
Cut chicken breasts into 1 inch pieces and place in food processor or kitchenaid food grinder attachment.
Process until it is a fine paste(about 1/2 way there stop and add in seasonings, these measurements may require some adjustments for your personal tastes)
Next measure out your flour and cornmeal( I did 1/2 c white flour, 1/4 c cornmeal and 1/4 c whole wheat flour at a time to separate it into "batches") mix thoroughly
If you do not want to use eggs a water and salt solution is wonderful!
Bake at 400 degrees 6 minutes and flip, bake 6 minutes on the other side...
I got 2 batches of approx 20 nuggets
Place cooled nuggets in a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze for 3 hours, transfer to a freezer bag and place back in freezer
To cook from frozen , bake on baking sheet at 400 for about 17-20 minutes.
To make Gluten Free I subbed out the wheat flours with this recipe in addition to the above listed seasonings:
1 cup rice flour
1/3 cup potato starch
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1 cup cornmeal
then just continue as directed above!
(this was for a pretty large batch, 4 big breasts)
