Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

Serve these nuggets with barbecue sauce, honey mustard or sweet-and-sour dipping sauce for a real treat.

Make dipping easy: Use one hand for butter dipping and dropping chicken into cereal mixture, then the other hand for cereal dipping and turning.
