Chicken Nuggets with Barbecue Dipping Sauce
This recipe is sure to score a touchdown with your game-day crew. The key to these yummy chicken nuggets is the breading, which contains reduced-fat baked cheese crackers. Whip up this simple recipe during pregame to whet everyone’s appetite. The dipping sauce uses an unexpected ingredient to deliver its lip-smacking flavor.

Ingredients
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash black pepper
2 cups crushed reduced-fat baked cheese crackers
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons no-sugar-added peach or apricot fruit spread

Directions
Yield: 8 servings
Serving size: 5 nuggets with about 2 teaspoons sauce

1 – Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut chicken into 40 (1-inch) pieces.

2 – Place flour, salt, and pepper in large resealable food storage bag. Combine cracker crumbs and oregano in shallow bowl. Whisk together egg white and water in small bowl.

3 – Place 6 to 8 chicken pieces in bag with flour mixture; seal bag. Shake until chicken is well coated. Remove chicken from bag; shake off excess flour. Coat all sides of chicken pieces with egg white mixture. Roll in crumb mixture. Place in shallow baking pan. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces. Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown.

4 – Meanwhile, combine barbecue sauce and jam in small saucepan; cook and stir over low heat until heated through. Serve chicken nuggets with dipping sauce.

Note: To freeze chicken nuggets, cool 5 minutes on baking sheet. Wrap chicken in plastic wrap, making packages of 5 nuggets each. Place packages in freezer container or plastic freezer bag. Freeze.

Tri-Tip Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Tri-Tip Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start this Monday Morning off I prepared a Sunny Side Up Egg, 3 slices of Glier’s Turkey Goetta, Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Now this is a way to start a Monday off! 85 degrees and mostly sunny out today. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for Mom and stopped and got gas for her. Got the cart out and did a little yard work. Cut down some dead vines and a bush. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Tri-Tip Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

Mom had been wanting to try Omaha Steaks for some time and I finally broke down and purchased a few types for us. I purchased a Fully Cooked Pot Roast, Omaha Steaks Burgers, and Fully Cooked Tri-Tip Sandwich Steaks. We are having the Fully Cooked Tri-Tip Sandwich Steaks for Dinner tonight. And Yes, I’m having Beef! First time in a while, usually its Buffalo. So with everything I ordered we’ll be having Beef a little more than usual.

 

They come frozen, 6 – 4 oz. Steaks per box. So I got 2 of the Tri-Tips and sat them in the fridge overnight to thaw. They come Seasoned and fully cooked, nice size Tri-Tips. So all I have to is heat them up, and ready to serve! I grabbed a Cast Iron Skillet added a little of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated the Skillet on medium heat. With the Skillet heated I added the Steaks. Cooked the Steaks until they heated up, flipping them once.

 

As the Steaks were cooking I heated up some Mushrooms, for a topping for the Steaks. I heated those up in a small Skillet. So I’ll be serving them on a Kroger 100% Whole Wheat Hoagie Roll. I love these Hoagie Buns, they are always so fresh! Topped the Steaks with some of the Sauteed Mushrooms. These Steaks are so good! Excellent Seasoning, Tender, and just flat out Delicious! I’m glad Mom wanted to try them, great choice Mom! These were perhaps the most Tender Beef Steaks I have ever had, makes me want Beef a bit more!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped a dab of Cool Whip Light.
