Sort of Chicken Nuggets and Fries

So, instead of going to McDonald's and getting nuggets and fries, we had a healthier version of our own. I spiced things up by including some jerk seasoning mix in the breading. This was about a 15 minute dinner - perfect for a weeknight!

Baked Chicken Nuggets w/ Cornmeal breading
1 lb. boneless skinless breast, cut into about 2 inch pieces
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup flour
1 tbsp. jerk seasoning
1 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg, beaten with a splash of water

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Combine the dry ingredients in a shallow bowl.
Beat the egg in a separate bowl with a splash of water.
Dip chicken in the egg, then toss in the cornmeal mixture.
Place the chicken on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for about 6 minutes, turn chicken over, and cook an additional 6 minutes.

Quick Mashed Potatoes
4 yukon gold potatoes
1/4 cup soy milk
Salt, pepper, garlic powder

Cut potatoes into quarters and place in a pot.
Cover the potatoes with cold water (about 1 inch above the potatoes)
Bring to a boil and boil for about 10 minutes (until fork tender).
Drain and return to hot pot.
Mash with masher and add milk and seasoning.

Prep time - about 5 minutes
Cook time - 15-20 minutes
1 baking sheet, 1 pot, chopping board and knife, and a serving dishes.
