Crunchy Healthy Nuggets
(no ratings)

This recipe is from an article on, so I was surprised not to find it in the recipe database. I added the dash of salt and pepper to taste. I also recommend cutting the chicken into really small chunks-- it worked better for us!

A tasty recipe for those days when the temptation is strong!

This is an excellent sweet, spicy, healthy dish for cool fall days. Use Tilapia for high protein and mild flavor, but the recipe can be used for chicken breasts or other lean protein. Serve over brown rice or Quinoa.

These are addictive. They're sweet, salty, spicy, and crunchy. Cut back on the sriracha/chili flakes to tame these fiery snacks. Use smoked (not hot or sweet) paprika.

This recipe is for when you absolutely must have something crunchy, salty, and nutty to snack on-- and you don't want to break your eating plan. Amazingly low-cal, low-fat, and high in protein-- a good snack to have around for holiday and super bowl parties!

They are also delicious with other spice blends when you aren't feeling the curry: I have posted a spicy maple version as well!

Who says you have to serve fajitas in a flour tortilla? Instead of serving peppers in the fajitas, I serve fajitas in a roasted pepper!
