Cornmeal Crusted Chicken Nuggets


  • 1½ pounds chicken tenders, cut in half
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free cornmeal
  • 1½ tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon or whole grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise substitute


Sprinkle chicken tenders with salt and pepper. Place cornmeal in a bowl, add the seasoned chicken, and toss well to coat. Discard any leftover cornmeal.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once or twice, until browned and cooked through, 6-8 minutes.

Combine the mustard and mayonnaise. Serve with the chicken nuggets for dipping.


Serves 4-6
