Cut your Chicken Breast into small “nugget” sized pieces (however big you want your chicken nuggets). Turn your Rolled Oats into oat flour by blending or processing them until they look like flour. Take out a bowl and add in your oat flour, Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs, Parmesan Grated Cheese, and Black Pepper into it. Lightly mix everything together. Take out another bowl and add in your Reduced Fat Mayonnaise, Olive Oil, Eggs, Minced Garlic, and Sriracha. Mix everything together. Take out a baking sheet and coat it with non-stick cooking spray. Take each piece of chicken, roll it around in your wet mix and then in your dry mix a few times before putting it onto your baking sheet. Bake on 375°F/190°C for 20:00-25:00. Enjoy!
