Easy Peasy Chicken "Nuggets"

Have you been watching those McDonald's commercials with the chicken nuggets? I am often left with a craving for some little morsels of protein to dip in delicious BBQ sauce after a commercial break. Thus I developed my own nuggets that will seem so simple you will ask why you haven't done this too! Make sure your BBQ sauce is HFCS free (or make your own!). I use Bullseye sauce when I get the nugget craving!

Chicken breast (yup that is it)

Cut chicken breast into small nugget size pieces. Put in electric steamer basket and steam for 28 minutes.

Seriously. That's it. LOVE them. 3 ounces is 3 points!

I will post a recipe soon for a breaded baked nugget that is not your usual cornflake recipe. I was going to make it today but the electric steamer was just so darn easy I couldn't bring myself to use the stove (plus I was making Red Kuri Squash, recipe forthcoming).

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
