A healthy chicken poppers kind of WIAW!

Standard

I’ve been gone from the WIAW world for the past two weeks, but I am back! Let’s do this 🙂

My eats come from last Friday…and I sure was hungry for some reason! I think I ate all day long…

WIAW

 

Breakfast: Two-ingredient banana egg pancake with almond butter and some flax seed +unsweetened coconut

Morning snack: I raided the office kitchen to find some pretzels and two clementines. They sure hit the spot!

Lunch: Sweet potato bowl with 1/2 roasted sweet potato, black beans, red and green peppers, onions, and corn topped with chipotle salsa + baby carrots on side

Afternoon snack: Mango Chobani with puffed wheat and oats (and a few handfuls of puppy chow as I made it for the hubby!)

Dinner…oh, it’s coming! Keep scrolling 🙂

Evening snack: Small bowl of Crispix cereal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk

And, now for dinner…

Popcorn chicken dippersOh yeah…don’t you just want to dip some right now? I call them healthy chicken poppers, and they are phenomenal with an easy-as-can-be honey dijon dipping sauce! Do you want the recipe?

You do?

Okay, well if you insist…

Healthy popcorn chicken with honey dijon dipping

 

Healthy Chicken Poppers & Honey Dijon Dipping Sauce 

  • 2 large chicken breasts, trimmed of fat and cut into small cubes
  • 1 c. whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/3 c. panko
  • Salt & pepper (to taste)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. plain greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 3/4 Tbsp. honey
  1. Preheat oven to 375 and spray a cooking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Set out two small bowls. In the first bowl, combine bread crumbs & panko + salt and pepper to taste. In the second bowl, beat two eggs.
  3. Roll chicken pieces in egg wash until covered and then immediately place in breadcrumb mixture. Mix until each piece is covered and then set on the baking sheet.
  4. Once you have breaded all chicken poppers, place chicken in oven and cook for about ten minutes, flipping once. (The smaller your pieces, the less cooking time you’ll need.)
  5. In a separate bowl, combine greek yogurt, dijon mustard, and honey for your dipping sauce. Enjoy!

 

How to level up this recipe: 

  • Gluten-free or breadcrumbs just not your thing? You could easily “bread” your chicken with almond meal instead.

How to level down this recipe:

  • For an added punch of flavor, add 1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese to the breading mixture.
