Gluten Free Spicy Chicken Nuggets
Why I Love This Recipe
I fancied some chicken nuggets and couldn't be bothered to walk to the local supermarket where I may or may not have been able to buy some of the expensive free from ones. Instead I looked in one of my recipe books "Seriously Good Gluten-Free Cooking" by Phil Vickery. I found a recipe, however didn't have all the ingredients, so adapted it. I also don't like deep fat frying, so baked them instead. These are delicious at the fraction of the cost. I froze half of them after coating them with breadcrumbs.
If you are cooking these for someone who is strictly gluten free, make sure you oven tray is clean. I can't guarantee this at home, so I always put food on grease proof paper as an additional safeguard.
