Tender Chicken Nuggets for 4

Four ingredients are all it takes to create these moist golden bites that are healthier than fast food. "I serve them with ranch dressing and barbecue sauce for dipping," reports Lynne Hahn of Winchester, California.

    I haven't tried this recipe but I make one that is similar I found in a Taste of Home Cookbook. You use Ranch Dressing instead of the egg whites as a dip before the bread crumbs and my son loves them. I gave the recipe to friends at work and their kids also loved them.

    Very good and very easy = very important when you're a busy mom! The only difference I made with this was I made chicken tenders instead of chicken nuggets so I had to cook it longer.
