Does an all natural (no hormones, preservatives, etc.) chicken nugget, breaded with whole wheat flour, exist? What brand, and where can I get it? Thanks!

I found this recipe online. You should be able to substitute whole wheat flour and use whole wheat bread crumbs. With organic chicken it should work. Have to say I have never tried the recipe myself but it seems easy enough.

Thanks for the link...I think I'll find a day to be "overzealous" (as the author says!) and try these!

Breading chicken is quite easy and you can have a lot of fun with it using that recipe as a starting point. Substitute other things for the breadcrumbs (crushed cornflakes, crushed soda crackers, etc) and play around with the spices. If your kids are old enough, let them choose their own ingredients and do some of the work. Getting them in the habit of making home-cooked food at an early age is never a bad idea.

You could make them - do a big batch one day, portion them and freeze them. Then you would know for sure what was in them.

Do you have a recipe? Ideally I'd like to make them taste/look pretty similar to Tyson.

Pretty close. Those are gluten free as well - Emily wanted whole wheat flour. But that's probably ok. It's still healthy.

Those do look like a good alternative. It's just a shame that specialty foods are so much more costly.

@Emily, have you looked at Trader Joe's or Choices or Capers, or stores of that nature? Depending where you live you might have luck with a Google search for something like "organic market yourcity". Honestly, I'd be tempted to try making them.

Those look interesting - thank you! @Scott, I know, the cost is really a problem. I'm really trying to feed my family a more health-conscious diet (no hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, preservatives) but it is so incredibly expensive! Baby steps - I figure even one "better choice" is better for our family!

I'm a big fan of

Both of these recipes use nothing more exotic than what's already in our kitchen.

If "bread crumbs" is too unnatural for you (let's face it, the one's sold prepackaged at the grocery store often contain a lot of unpronounceable preservatives), don't worry -- they are easy to make at home with stale/toasted bread. It's easiest with a food processor but that's not mandatory. There are also lots of recipes online.
