Living healthfully shouldn’t be about fistfuls of kale that leave you gagging and distressed.

Type: Meat Prep Time: 50 minutes Level: Easy

Main ingredients

3/4 cup quinoa, uncooked

1 pound chicken breast

1 cup flour of choice (see note)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground

2 large eggs

3 teaspoons water

Gefen Honey, for drizzling

Prepare the Chicken Nuggets
Preheat oven to 350° F. Cover a baking sheet with Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper and spray with cooking spray; set aside.

Cook quinoa according to package directions; salt and pepper to taste.

Cut chicken into flat, two-inch, nugget-sized pieces.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, and pepper.

In another small bowl, whisk together the egg and water.

Working in small batches, coat pieces of chicken with the flour mixture; then, dip in egg mixture to coat completely, letting the excess egg drip off. Finally, drop into the quinoa, lightly pressing and flipping until all sides are coated.

Place quinoa-coated chicken onto the prepared baking sheet; spray with a little extra cooking spray if desired to make them extra crispy, and drizzle with honey.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the outsides are slightly browned and the chicken is cooked through. Serve with your favourite dipping sauce.

Note: Here I used chickpea flour, but any works. Almond would be nice, too.
