Chicken nuggets.....

So, with this baby has come an entire boatload of nesting and homemaking craziness from this mama!  We've torn apart rooms, rearranged entire rooms, and even cleaned out and re-purposed rooms.  Along with all that I've been trying my hardest to keep my three guys eating well and on a schedule, of some sort.  A friend posted this nice little recipe that we tried out, and I have to say, it is a HIT!   So long, children yearning for mushed chicken innards and such pressed into chicken nugget shapes from the drive through.  They are thrilled with chicken nuggets from our oven!  I followed the recipe exactly, except for the small change in making it Gluten Free for our family.  On the next go I intend to change up the flavors and spices a little bit for hubby's taste buds.  This recipe fed our family of four supper, two of us for lunch, as well as stashing a third of the batch in the freezer for an easy supper in the future.

Popcorn Chicken
3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3/4 cup whole wheat flour (used gluten free baking mix in place of whole wheat flour)
1/2 t. sea salt
1/2 t. garlic powder
In a medium sized bowl, stir together flour, salt and garlic powder.  Using kitchen shears, cut chicken breasts into tiny bite sized pieces.   Toss chicken in flour mixture to coat well. 
Smear a thick layer of butter on the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.  Pour coated chicken into dish, spreading so that they are in a single layer.
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  Stir chicken and bake another 10 minutes.
