  • 1 cup flour, seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1 large egg, combined with 1 tablespoon water and beaten lightly
  • 3 1/2 cups cornflakes, crushed (or 24 Triscuits ground in a food processor)
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into nugget-sized pieces
  • vegetable oil spray
  • 1/4 cup store-bought barbecue sauce (or low-fat ranch dressing)
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place the flour mixture in a shallow bowl, the egg mixture in a second shallow bowl, and the cornflake or Triscuits crumbs in a third bowl. Dip the chicken first in the flour mixture, then in the egg mixture and finally in the crumb mixture.

    Put the coated chicken on a baking sheet coated with vegetable oil spray. Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 15 minutes. Let cool completely, chill and pack for lunch with a small container of bbq or ranch sauce.
