Chicken Nuggets with Barbecue Dipping Sauce

YIELD Makes 8 servings

INGREDIENTS

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash black pepper
2 cups crushed reduced-fat baked cheese crackers
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons no-sugar-added peach or apricot fruit spread

PREPARATION:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut into 40 (1-inch) pieces.
  2. Place flour, salt, if desired and pepper in large resealable food storage bag. Combine cracker crumbs and oregano in shallow bowl. Whisk together egg white and water in small bowl.
  3. Place 6 to 8 chicken pieces in bag with flour mixture; seal bag. Shake until chicken is well coated. Remove chicken from bag; shake off excess flour. Coat all sides of chicken pieces with egg white mixture. Roll in crumb mixture. Place in shallow baking pan. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces. Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Meanwhile, combine barbecue sauce and jam in small saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until heated through. Serve chicken nuggets with dipping sauce.
Note
For each serving, stir together about 1-1/2 teaspoons barbecue sauce and 1/2 teaspoon jam in small microwavable dish. Microwave on HIGH 10 to 15 seconds or until hot.
Note
To reheat nuggets, preheat oven to 325°F. Unwrap nuggets. Place nuggets on ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until hot. Or, place 4 to 5 nuggets on microwavable plate. Microwave on DEFROST (30%) 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 minutes or until hot, turning once.
Note
To freeze chicken nuggets, cool 5 minutes on baking sheet. Wrap chicken in plastic wrap, making packages of 5 nuggets each. Place packages in freezer container or plastic freezer bag. Freeze.
