So, I made this exactly as prescribed and was a little nonplussed, particularly by the crust. I think maybe next time, I will add some crumbled saltines. This will make it less healthy, but may give it that "pop" I was expecting. The sauce was great, but for 2, I'd halve it--now I've got bunch left over that I'm not quite sure what to do with.
Cornmeal-Crusted Chicken Nuggets with Blackberry Mustard
From EatingWell: July/August 2010
Tossing chicken tenders with cornmeal gives these chicken nuggets great crunch without deep-frying. Blackberries (or raspberries, if you prefer) combined with whole-grain mustard make for a sweet-and-savory dipping sauce. Serve with: Steamed broccoli and carrots.

My husband and I both LOVED the chicken, but hated the dipping sauce. The flavors of the sauce just didn't seem to blend well. We enjoyed dipping them in a spicy BBQ sauce. Chicken had great flavor, wasn't dry, and wasn't greasy.
Since we have been dieting I have been trying all kinds of healthy recipes from online and so far this is our favorite. We have made it twice now and I am making it again this week. So Yummy!
An absolute favorite! I will never again buy frozen breaded chicken nuggets. These beat those by a mile.
It's unfair to critique a recipe that you haven't tried; what's the point? FYI, pan frying in a very small amount of heart healthy olive oil seems like a better idea than spraying them with whatever is used to artificially flavor the butter spray. If you insist on baking, spray them with olive or canola oil and use a high temp in the oven.
