Our kid testers gobbled these up and rated them a "10." Since they're not deep-fried, these nuggets are guilt-free.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
2/3 cup bread crumbs
1 pound thinly sliced boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into nuggets


Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a 9 by 13-inch baking dish with olive oil.

2. In a bowl, lightly beat the egg with water. Pour bread crumbs into a shallow bowl. Dip chicken pieces into egg and then into bread crumbs. Put coated chicken pieces in the baking pan, then turn them over to coat with oil.

3. Put chicken pieces on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake about 20 minutes, turning once, or until cooked through.

How kids can help: Beat egg with water; measure bread crumbs.

For grown-ups: Add 3/4 tsp chili pepper to bread crumbs. Serve with salsa and honey-mustard dipping sauce (mix 3/4 cup sour cream with 3 Tbs dijon mustard and 4 tsp honey).
