These gluten free chicken nuggets are fast and easy to make. The great thing about them is that you bake them instead of deep-frying. This makes a healthier gluten-free dinner. Use the recipe for homemade seasoned bread crumbs, or add dried herbs and/or parmesan cheese to commercial gluten free bread crumbs. You can even grind up gluten-free cereal or crackers to substitute for the bread crumbs. No matter what sauce you dip them in, they are delicious, even plain!
