Low Calorie Baked Chicken Nuggets

A nutritionist suggested we start using Fiber One Cereal while cooking, to bulk up the amount of fiber in our diets.  Using this crushed, allows me to use it as a coating, in sauces, and even in granola.  The cereal to us is nasty tasting as a cereal, but it does not change the taste  when used in cooking.

1 lb chicken cut into chunks
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup wheat bread crumbs
1/4 cup crushed fiber one cereal
3 TBSP Flax seed
1/4 cup milk

1.  Mix bread crumbs, crushed fiber one cereal, and flax seed in a shallow bowl or plate.  Pour 1/4 cup milk into another bowl.
2.  Preheat oven to 400.  Spray baking sheet with olive oil spray.
3.  Dip chicken chunks into milk and then dip into bread crumb/fiber one mixture.  Press mixture into chicken and place on baking sheet.
4.  Spray chicken nuggest with olive oil spray and bake for 10 minutes.  Turn chicken over and spray with olive oil and bake for another 10 minutes or until done.  These chicken nuggets are very crunchy without the fat.
