Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup whole-wheat flour

  • 2

    large egg whites (about 6 tablespoons liquid egg whites)

  • 1/2

    cup Purple or Orange Puree

  • (see Make-Ahead Recipe #1, p. 257 or #2, p. 258), divided

  • 1/2

    cup store-bought BBQ sauce, divided

  • 2

    tablespoons honey, divided

  • 1/2

    cup ground flax or wheat germ

  • 1

    cup crushed whole-grain cereal flakes (from about 2 cups of cereal)

  • 1

    pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small nuggets

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions

> Place flour in a shallow dish or on a plate. In another shallow bowl, beat egg whites with 1/4 cup of the Purple or Orange Puree, 1/4 cup of the BBQ sauce, and 1 tablespoon of the honey and place next to the flour. In a third shallow dish or on a paper plate, combine the ground flax and crushed cereal. Place remaining puree, BBQ sauce, and honey in a clean bowl and set aside to use as dipping sauce. > Dredge each piece of chicken in the flour, shaking off excess, then dip in the egg mixture, followed by the cereal mixture. Press the breading evenly onto both sides of the chicken. Put on wax or parchment paper and store in the refrigerator for cooking tomorrow or proceed to cook immediately. > Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place breaded nuggets on a lightly sprayed cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Turn chicken nuggets over once with tongs, then return to oven for another 10 to 12 minutes until cooked through. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste. Serve with honey BBQ dipping sauce.
