Cornmeal-Crusted Chicken Nuggets with Blackberry Mustard

July/August 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4 (336 votes)

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.

33 Reviews for Cornmeal-Crusted Chicken Nuggets with Blackberry Mustard


not as delicious as I expected. The sauce was just so so though I felt good about serving blackberries for dipping. The chicken was also just good but nothing spectacular. The younger of my kids didn't even use the sauce but devoured the chicken. Wouldn't add to our repertoire.

Chicken yes, mustard no

Okay, maybe I did something wrong, but I didn't really like the mustard. It's not that it was bad - it tasted fine - but I didn't understand how the flavors went together at all. I did use raspberries instead of blackberries, so maybe that that something to do with it? Still a good recipe, though.

moist, easy to make, quick, cheap

I take it back! I take it all

I take it back! I take it all back! A few bites into the meal and I was enthusiastically dipping the chicken into the plate of raspberry mustard I had on the side. I would up this to four stars.

Tasty, Easy and Elegant

This was my first every gluten free meal and it turned out well. I felt satisfied after eating it and serving it with rice noodles and a romaine lettuce salad. The chicken turned out moist. I did use some extra oil to get the chicken a little crispier. I enjoyed the blackberry sauce with the combination sweet and tart taste.

simple to prepare, tasty, healthy
Good on day 1, but not on day 2

Really liked this meal for dinner. I made the blackberry sauce with frozen blackberries and it was just sooooo good! Love dipping my nuggets into the sauce. However, on day 2 .. the corn meal on the chicken didn't really taste all that good :-( So I won't make the chicken again.

blackberry sauce - YUM
Wonderful and easy to make!

I made this dish last night and it was wonderful! I did add extra spices for flavor, and also used 2 tbsp of olive oil instead of 1 tbsp. My daughter and boyfriend loved it too!

Healthy, easy to make, tasty, quick
