Chicken Nuggets

Free of:  Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Corn, Egg

Every now and then I try to make fast food at home.  This is my version of chicken nuggets.  I serve them up with a side of homemade french fries.

3 cups Erewhon Brown Rice Cereal
1 tsp Italian Salad Dressing Mix
Salt and Pepper (optional)
Parsely (optional)
6 (about 3 lbs.) chicken breasts cut up into 1-inch chunks
Oil for frying

Place cereal and salad dressing in a blender.  Blend until its a fine powder. ( You can pulse instead, if you like your coating chunky. )  Place your coating in a bowl.  Add salt, pepper, and parsley to your taste, and mix until well combined.    Dredge chicken pieces in the rice coating until all sides are well coated.  Deep fry in oil for 3-5 minutes, making sure that they are cooked through.  Be sure that when you are frying the chicken not to overcrowd the pan or fryer.  I deep fry my nuggets at 325 degrees.  Serve hot, with your favorite dipping sauce.

Honey Mustard Sauce
I use equal parts Dijon Honey Mustard and honey. (For example 4 Tbsp of each).
