Ritzy Chicken Nuggets

frugal and easy recipesIngredients (using freezer chicken, stockpiled mayo and Ritz crackers):

2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
25 Ritz Crackers (crushed)
1/2 cup Mayo
3 TB milk
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning
Dash of black pepper
1/2 tsp. sesame seeds (optional)

Preheat oven to 400. Slice chicken into bite-size pieces. In a shallow bowl combine mayo, milk, garlic salt, onion powder, Mrs. Dash and black pepper. In another bowl add crushed Ritz Crackers and sesame seeds. Dip chicken into mayo mixture and then coat with crackers. Place chicken on a greased baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes, turning halfway. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

Notes from the chef:

These are amazingly delicious, trust me. They are so flavorful, we seriously ate the whole pan. Next time I make these I’m going to make triple and freeze some. They are golden and crunchy and taste better than fast food nuggets. Yes, the mayo kind of ups the calories here, but compare these to any fast food chicken and you win. Baking instead of frying saves on fat, but you aren’t compromising on the taste. Your children will thank you!

    I have chicken tenders…how many tenders would equal a breast? I am going to try these tonight!

      Depending on how thin they are sliced, my guess would be 3?

        thanks – I had no idea what I was doing (I dont eat meat and my hubby will not eat chicken, so I never buy it or cook with it)….I did way more than that and then did 1.5 times the milk/mayo and about 3 times the ritz crackers…I lopped them all in together in the mayo mix and then threw in a bag with the crackers – LOL, I had a mess!! I’m leaving the hubby in charge of cooking while I’m gone – hope they turn out 🙂 They smell good!
