Cheesy Fish or Chicken Nuggets

I have been wanting to add my Cheesy Nuggets for a while so I am finally getting it up. This is excellent for fish or chicken nuggets! I did fish today for a recipe trial tonight. (If it works it will be up too!)

2 lbs White Fish  (Tilapia, Cod, Pollock, Swai) or Chicken

1 cup finely crushed cheese crackers....(homemade or something like Cheez-Its or Goldfish)
1/3  cup corn meal
1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan
1 TB paprika(smoked if you have it)
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup milk

 Preheat oven to 425

Cut your fish or chicken into desired size pieces.

In a large ziplock bag place cornstarch and fish or chicken pieces, shake to coat each piece well.

Add milk and shake again to make sure each piece is evenly dampened. (Missed this pic, my bag had a hole and was dripping!)

In a shallow dish mix cracker crumbs, cornmeal, parm, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. ( I put mine all in the dry container for my vitamix to make the crackers extra fine and chop up the Parmesan)

Remove pieces of fish or chicken , tapping to remove excess batter, and roll in the cracker mixture, coating well.

Place on a greased baking sheet.

Bake for 15-20 minutes (chicken may take longer) until they are cooked through, 145 for fish, 165 for chicken

Serve with your choice of  sauce
