Chicken Nuggets (Makes 25-30 nuggets)

Actually these tasty bites of chicken could be served as an appetizer or snack as well as a light entrée.  It’'s a great idea to serve hungry kids.  In fact, get them to help with the entire procedure…most kids love to cook.

1 pound skinned and boned chicken breast
3 tablespoons fat free milk
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
Barbecue sauce or sweet and sour sauce for dipping, if    you wish

1. Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes.  Place the pieces in a     small bowl.

2. Pour milk over chicken.  Mix lightly so that all chicken     is coated with milk.

3. In a plastic bag, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan     cheese, seasoned salt, paprika, garlic powder and     pepper.  Shake until ingredients are evenly combined.
