Breaded Healthy Chicken Nuggets
This is a healthy version of an old favorite. Includes wheat germ and flax seed as part of breading."Came out very well and better than anything from the freezer isle. I stuck with the prescribed butter, but think experimenting with different oils would be a great way to change the flavor profile. I've made these 3-4 times now and love dicing whatever fresh herbs I've got at the moment to add to the crumb mixture. This had turned into a quick crowd pleaser in my house and will stay in the dinner repertoire. " - Seattle217

Breaded Healthy Chicken Nuggets Preparation
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Cut chicken breasts into 1 1/2 inch size pieces. In a medium bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, wheat germ, flax seed, cheese, salt, thyme and basil. Mix well. Put melted butter/margarine in a bowl or dish for dipping.
Dip chicken pieces into the melted butter/margarine first, then coat with the breadcrumb mixture. Place well coated chicken pieces on a lightly greased cookie sheet in a single layer, and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
