Chicken Patties / Chicken Nuggets

    Sometimes I just crave "kid food". Chicken nuggets!! I usually make the adult form of a chicken nugget, which is of course a chicken patty. However, this recipe can easily be made into nuggets, trust me, I have done it before!! You just shape the patties much smaller and they turn into nuggets. The bonus is, you know what is going into the food. It is 100% chicken.
     I looooove this chicken patty on a toasted Udi's bun, lots of honey mustard and a little bit of lettuce. Add a side of extra crunch tater tots and I am in heaven! So yummy!

Chicken Nuggets/ Chicken Patties

1 lb. Ground Chicken
Large handful of Ridged Potato Chips, crushed
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
1/2 tsp. Paprika
1/2 C. Bob's Red Mill All Purpose GF Flour
4 T. Cooking Oil

In a pie plate or on a paper plate mix the crushed potato chips, black pepper, paprika, and gf flour. Shape the ground chicken into patties (1 lb. should make 4-5 patties). Place the patty into the flour/potato chip mixture and coat the patty. Flip it over and coat the other side. When all the patties are coated with the mixture, place them into a skillet with the cooking oil heated to a medium high heat. Cook the patties until the outsides are a golden brown and the inside is no longer pink. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or serve on a gluten free bun.
Crunch your gf potato chips into tiny chunks. The easiest way to do that is to put them into a plastic baggie and smoosh them. (Great job to assign the kiddos)
Combine your smooshed chips, gf flour, pepper and paprika.
Shape your 1 lb. ground chicken into patties or nuggets.
Press the chicken patty into the flour. Flip and coat the other side as well.
Place the chicken patties or nuggets into the hot cooking oil.
Be sure that each side is a golden brown and that the inside is no longer pink.
Remove the chicken patties from the hot oil and let them drain on a plate lined with paper towels.

Enjoy the "kid food"!!
