I had just come up with the Pan-Asian American Dippin' N Drizzlin' BBQ sauce and needed something to test it on. We decided we were in the mood for chicken nuggets or chicken strips and that I would Asian them up a little to match the sauce. We went to the store and couldn't find any chicken strips or chicken nuggets that were not already flavored or breaded. I decided to make our own by cutting some chicken breast into bite size pieces. I wanted to add some shredded coconut to the breading mixture but forgot it, so feel free to try it that way and tell me what you think. I burned these just a tad but not enough to ruin them so be really careful when I say to broil them. You just want to get them crispy. I accidental broiled them for 4 minutes when I meant to only do so for 2-3 minutes. I was busy making margaritas and had set the timer wrong. So for that part of the recipe really keep out a watchful eye!

2 chicken breast (cut into nugget size portions)
1/2 tsp 5 spice powder
1 tbsp and 1 tsp sesame seeds
1/2 cup panko (Japanese style bread crumbs)
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 tbsp and 1 tsp fresh ginger (minced)
1/2 tsp dried ginger
1 egg
2 tbsp Brummel and brown (melted)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)

Whisk melted Brummel and brown in a small bowl with egg. In a separate small bowl mix, 5 seasonings, bread crumbs, panko and ginger.

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Roll chicken breast nuggets in egg mixture and then bread crumb mixture till coated well. Set all coated nuggets into a medium baking dish and then bake at 475 bake 15 minutes. Turn oven to broil and cook an additional 2-3 minutes (be careful not to burn chicken here you are just trying to crisp it a little.)

Additional uses for this recipe:
1.Wrap a spinach tortilla around this chicken, with some bean sprouts, sliced tomato, provolone and drizzle with some of our Pan-Asian American Dippin' N Drizzlin' Sauce (toppings/sauce label) for a great wrap.
