H-O-T Hot Buffalo Chicken Nuggets

My friend Monica came over for dinner the other night and I made us Hungry Girl's H-O-T Boneless Buffalo wings. They were easy and really yummy and at 175 calories per's dang good for you!

Cast of characters:

8 oz raw boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 10 nuggets

1/4 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)

1 oz Pringles Fat Free Barbecue potato chips

3 Tablespoons Frank's Red Hot original cayenne pepper sauce (or other Tabasco type hot sauce)

Dash onion powder

Dash garlic powder (yall know I used more than a dash!!)

Dash cayenne pepper

Dash black pepper

Dash salt

This is what the crushed up cereal & b-b-q pringles looks like

Chicken in hot sauce

nuggets coated in breading before they were baked


The finished product all cooked & delicious


Preheat oven to 375

In a blender or food processor (I used my magic bullet) grind fiber one to a breadcrumb like consistency.

Crush potato crisps completely. In a small dish mix crushed crisps with cereal crumbs and add onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, black pepper and salt and mix well.

Place chicken in a separate bowl, cover with hot sauce and toss to coat.

Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray. Give each chicken piece a shake so its not dripping with sauce, and then coat evenly with crumb mixture. Lay crumb covered nuggets on baking sheet.

Bake in oven for 10 minutes

Flip nuggets over and lake for 10 more minutes, or until outsides are crispy and chicken is cooked through.

Makes 2 servings (I doubled the recipe and had leftovers for lunch)
