  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Spray 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking spray. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet. Place cereal in shallow bowl.
  • 2
    In another shallow bowl, place honey mustard. Dip each chicken piece into dressing, then roll in cereal to coat. Place in pan.
  • 3
    Bake about 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Serve with yellow mustard.

Expert Tips

  • Coating the chunks is a snap when you work quickly with one fork in each hand. Drop the chicken chunks into the dressing; turn to coat, then lift into crumbs with one fork. Use the other hand (and fork) to turn and coat in the crumbs and voilà—neatly coated chicken chunks!
  • Serve these crispy nuggets with purchased dipping sauces—barbecue, honey-mustard or sweet-and-sour—just like your favorite drive-thru!
