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.
"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!

Our entire family liked this meal. We parents loved that it was low fat and, for our daughter, gluten and dairy free. The sauce was good but I would push it thru a sieve to get rid of the seeds next time. The kids loved the sauce so much they dipped the sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli in it as well. Just as good the second day for the lunch box.
I totally love this dish! It proved to my husband that healthy food can be delicious and not be covered by a sauce or gravy! I didn't have fresh blackberries, so I used seedless blackberry jam (only about 1/4 cup or so) to mix in with the honey and mustard. Top notch! This will be my go-go recipe often, especially when I'm craving chicken with a coating! Yummy! I'm gonna share it with everyone I know!
The chicken nuggets themselves were good. However, we weren't a big fan of the sauce. I used fresh rasberries from the farmer's market and the sauce was very gritty and hard to chew...we ended up just using ketchup.
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.
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.
