Crunchy Whole-Grain Chicken Bites

Madeline is a big fan of chicken nuggets but I hate relying on prepackaged foods, but need something in a pinch when we’re running late or short on time. These chicken bites were tasty and super moist! You could definitely change the flavor up with different chips or adding hot sauce and bleu cheese for buffalo style bites.

1 lb chicken tenders
dry ranch dressing mix packet
1 egg white
6 cups whole-grain chips (I used regular Sun Chips)
1/4 tsp paprika
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the chicken tenders into 1 – 1 1/2 inch pieces. Whisk together 1 Tbsp of dressing mix and the egg white in a large bowl.

In a gallon sized resealable plastic bag, crush the chips into small pieces. Add the remaining dressing mix and paprika and shake well.

Add the chicken to the egg mixture and mix well to coat. Add half of the coated chicken to the chips and shake to coat with crumbs and arrange on a single layer on a baking stone. Repeat with the remaining coated chicken and chips.

Spray chicken generously with cooking spray. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until chicken is golden brown and center is no longer pink.
