Fried chicken nuggets rank high — both in taste and fat at fast-food joints. But not when you make them our way!


Honey mustard

2 tbsp(s)

1% low-fat buttermilk

2 tbsp(s)

Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast

1 pound(s), cut into 12 strips

Dried plain breadcrumbs

½ tbsp(s)

Barbecue sauce

6 tbsp(s), hickory-flavored preferred


  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF. Place a large baking sheet in the oven to preheat.
  2. In a shallow dish, whisk together mustard and buttermilk. Place bread crumbs in a separate dish. Add chicken to mustard mixture; turn to coat. Transfer chicken to bread crumbs and turn to coat.
  3. Remove the hot baking sheet from oven and coat with cooking spray. Place chicken on baking sheet and bake 6 minutes; flip and bake until golden brown and cooked through, about 6 minutes more.
  4. Serve chicken fingers with barbecue sauce on the side. Yields about 3 chicken fingers and 1 1/2 tablespoons of barbecue sauce per serving.
