Would work for south beach diet phase 2 if you switched the flour to Whole Wheat and made sure the crackers were whole wheat also.

This sounds really good, however it is not a low carb dish...I would substute the flour and crackers for something else, only use egg whites, and use No salt Ms. Dash...

I would imagine you could coat them in soya flour and chopped nuts, for a low carb version? Sounds yummy though!
These were yummy tender chicken nuggets that my kids even liked.

Instead of crackers and flour just use pork rinds. They have zero carbs and 4 grams of fat. Just crush the pork rinds.
