“Served with fat-free blue cheese dressing and celery sticks, this alternative preparation gives all the flavor and a fraction of the calories of traditional buffalo wings. Adapted from Hungry Girls.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 10 nugget-shaped pieces
  • 14 cup all-bran cereal, finely crushed (Fiber One preferred)
  • 1 ounce fat-free potato chips (Pringles preferred, approximately 14 chips) or 1 ounce Pringles fat free barbecue potato crisps, finely crushed (Pringles preferred, approximately 14 chips)

  • 18 teaspoon onion powder
  • 18 teaspoon garlic powder

  2. Mix dry ingredients together.
  3. Place chicken pieces in a separate dish and toss with pepper sauce.
  4. Give each chicken piece a shake (so it's not dripping) then coat it evenly with the crumb mixture.
  5. Lay the battered nuggets on the prepared baking pan.
  6. Place in preheated oven.
  7. Bake for ten minutes, flip the nuggets over and return to oven for 10 more minutes, or until outsides are crispy and chicken is cooked throughout.
