Pistachio Chicken Nuggets



1 pound of boneless skinless organic chicken breast cut up in 1-2” chunks

Preheat oven to 500 degrees (yes, 500--believe me, it's going to taste amazing!)

Breading:
Finely Grind 1 cup of properly prepared Pistachios in a food processor
Toast 3 slices of GF bread (We use Sammi’s Millet Bread) and add to food processor and grind with pistachio's
Place on a plate

Add to breading:
1 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp of pepper
Mix well

In a bowl combine well:
2 tsp-1 TBSP Dijon Mustard (depending on how "spicy" you want it) Omit for kid-friendly recipe
2-3 TBSP honey
3 TBSP oil of choice (olive, grapeseed, etc…)

Dip chicken in wet mixture and then dip into breading while coating the chicken pieces well.
Place on greased cookie sheet

Turn oven down to 375 and bake for 20 minutes until chicken is no longer pink.



This chicken goes great with potatoes or on top of salad!
