Chicken Nuggets

Ok, so this isn't really anything earth shattering, but my boys really liked these and I want to remember exactly how I made them. Nathan (age 3 1/2) ended up eating about 3 helpings of these. "Moe chikn, peez!" :)

My concoction for these originated from Heavenly Homemaker's Chicken Nuggets.

2 - 3 boneless chicken breasts
1/4 c unbleached AP flour
1/4 c whole wheat flour
1/8 c nutritional yeast
fine sea salt

1/2 c palm oil (or other oil of your choosing)

Combine flours and nutritional yeast in a bowl. Cut breasts into bite-sized pieces and coat in flour mixture. Heat oil over Medium heat in a small pot. (My stove-top tends to run hot, so you may need to use your's on Med-High.) Place chicken in hot oil in a single layer. Cook 7 minutes on each side. Salt while frying.

Using a slotted spoon, remove to a plate with paper towels on top to absorb excess oil. Allow to cool to an appropriate eating temperature.

(For those of you wondering... yes, palm oil is red. :) )
