Chicken Cordon Bleu Nuggets
From Every Day with Rachael Ray March 2009
2 large eggs
1 C breadcrumbs
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 C flour
Salt and pepper
6 deli slices ham, cut lengthwise into 4 strips each
6 deli slices swiss cheese, cut lengthwise into 4 strips each
1 large skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 24 chunks
Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. In a bowl, beat the eggs with a splash of water. On a plate, combine the breadcrumbs and thyme. On another plate, combine the flour with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Lay 12 ham strips on a work surface. Top each with a cheese strip. Place a chicken chunk toward the end of each strip and roll up to enclose the chicken.
Working with 1 chicken nugget at a time, lightly coat with the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs. Transfer seam side down to the prepared baking sheets. Lightly spray the nuggets with cooking spray and bake until crisp, about 20 minutes.
