Every now and then, we like to treat our kids with a special 'junk food' meal.  However, we also like to make those meals as healthy as possible.  Since our kids are finally starting to appreciate chicken nuggets, we made this healthier homemade version for their dinner.  It was a huge hit! Even better if served with homemade sweet potato fries.

Homemade Chicken Nuggets

3 cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2" cubes
1 generous cup all-purpose or rice flour
3 eggs, beaten
2 cups cornmeal*
2 tsp Italian seasoning

In 3 separate bowls, pour flour, eggs, and cornmeal + Italian seasoning.  Coat chicken pieces in flour, dredge in egg, and roll in cornmeal.  Place chicken pieces on baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden.  Serve with dipping sauces.

*For a crunchier nugget, you may substitute seasoned bread crumbs for the cornmeal and Italian seasoning.
