Honey Quinoa Chicken Nuggets
Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

Heat oven to 400°F (200°C). Trim any fat from chicken. Cut into “two-bite” size pieces – thighs into 3 pieces and breasts into 6 pieces – keeping them as similar in size as possible. In a medium size bowl, whisk eggs with salt, honey, Dijon and poultry seasoning if using. Place flour and quinoa in separate bowls.
Coat a piece of chicken with flour, then shaking off excess, place in egg mixture and turn to coat. Letting excess drip off, place in quinoa and gently press down. Turn and press again to lightly coat. Set on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining chicken.
Bake in center of a 400°F (200°C) oven until golden and no pink remains in chicken, about 20 minutes.Nuggets should reach an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
