Healthy Homemade Chicken Nuggets

If your kids are anything like mine, they LOVE their chicken nuggets! And, do you know what? So do my husband and I! Since we don't buy fast food due to their allergies, we enjoy having our own fast food night at home--nuggets and fries style! Here is the recipe that I use to make delicious, moist chicken nuggets with a healthy twist. There are never any left after a batch is made, so I am sure that means that the kids give them 5 spoons!

1 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup applesauce
2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
6-8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes

1. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs and seasonings. Pour the applesauce into another small bowl. Dip each chicken chunk into the applesauce and then into the bread crumb mixture.

2.Place in a greased (cooking spray will do!) baking pan. Bake uncovered, at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until juices run clear.
