Asher's Turkey Nuggets

I’m not very good at creating recipes, but here’s my first attempt since I wanted Asher to have something when other people are eating chicken nuggets. I think these nuggets are quite tasty in a salad.

Turkey Nuggets

1/4 cup all-purpose flour*
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs**
1 t garlic powder
1 t dried thyme
1/2 t salt
1/2 t black pepper
3/4 pound skinless, boneless turkey breast or fillet, cut into thin strips
1/2 c original rice milk
2 T-4 T canola oil

Combine first six ingredients in a shallow dish, and set aside. Combine the turkey and rice milk in plastic bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Remove turkey and discard marinade. Heat oil in nonstick skillet. Dredge turkey strips a few at a time in breadcrumb mixture, tossing to coat. Add turkey to pan, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until done.

*Rice flour or chickpea flour would work well if dealing with a wheat allergy
**Wheat-free bread crumbs would work here
