Freezer Friendly Healthy Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets
In my version of gluten free chicken nuggets, I use whole grain old fashioned gluten free oats, I coat it in flavourful mustard and bake them in the oven.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 4 people
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 2/3 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano cheese grated
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp herbs de provence
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 3 tbsp mustard (Dijon, Honey or Yellow)
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
To a food processor, add the garlic, oats, cheese, salt, paprika, herbs, and pepper. Process until the texture of course flour.
Put the mustard in a plastic baggy and add the chicken. Rub until fully coated with the mustard.
Put the oat mixture in another bag and then toss in the chicken. Shake until fully coated.
Bake uncovered for 15 minutes, flipping the chicken once half way through.
Allow to cool to room temp, then pop this on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and freeze until frozen solid (about 1 hour). Transfer to a freezer bag labeled with the date.
When ready to eat, you can re-bake the nuggets from frozen for 8-10 min at 425 F or pop in the microwave for a 1-2 min.
