Most children adore chicken nuggets. This healthful version begins with a soak in buttermilk to tenderize the lean meat and make it juicy.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare chicken, combine buttermilk and chicken. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes; drain.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 3

Place cornflakes, paprika, sugar, and salt in a food processor; process until cornflakes are finely chopped. Combine chicken and cornflake mixture, tossing well to coat. Place the chicken on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until done.

Step 4

To prepare sauce, combine mustard, honey, and ginger. Serve with chicken.
