Home Made Honey Dijon Chicken Nuggets

My 7yo son is very picky eater. He only eats certain meat and only if they are processed. Instead of buying Honey Dijon flavor chicken nuggets from the store I found a way to make it myself. Mind you with all natural, well mostly natural ingredients.

1 chicken breast, skinless/boneless cut into cubes

1/2 cup flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder


1/2 cup butter milk

5 tbsp prepared Honey Dijon Mustard

Put the chicken pieces on a plastic wrap about 1 inch apart. Cover them with another plastic on top. Flatten the chicken pieces by pounding with a meat tenderizer. Set aside. Mix all the dry ingredients in a medium size bowl (flour, salt, pepper, garlic & onion powder and paprika). Mix the Honey Dijon mustard and butter milk in another bowl. Add the chicken pieces into the flour mixture. Make sure the chicken is covered. Take the chicken pieces and put them into the batter (honey dijon mustard and butter milk mixture). See to it that they are covered with batter. (You can marinade the chicken for 1/2 hour if you want also.) Take the chicken pieces out of the marinade and put them back into the flour mixture. Deep fry until golden brown in a deep fryer. Or you can used a deep pot.

My ds likes them just the same like the store bought chicken nuggets
