Baked Chicken Nuggets

Baked Chicken Nuggets from Table for Seven

Baked Chicken Nuggets- -Forget the fast food version! Make healthier chicken nuggets homemade.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Boneless chicken breasts
  • Olive oil
  • Panko breadcrumbs
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • Dry Italian seasoning
  • Salt/Pepper

Chicken: I used 1.25 lbs of boneless chicken breasts. This should be approx 3-4 medium size breasts.

Olive oil: My preference is olive oil, but, canola, vegetable or sunflower will all work. Stick with a neutral tasting oil, for best results.

How to Make:

  • First, line a large flat rimmed baking sheet with foil. Then, spray the foil with non stick cooking spray and preheat your oven.
  • Next, cut your chicken breasts into bite size pieces/cubes. They should be about 1 inch in size.
  • Mix together breadcrumbs, cheese and dry seasonings.
  • Then, take each piece of chicken and coat it in the olive oil. Once it’s coated with the oil, coat it in the breadcrumbs/cheese mixture.
  • Repeat with each piece of chicken and place them on prepared baking sheet. Spray the chicken with non stick cooking spray.
  • Bake em’.

Storage: Keep any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator. They are best if they are eaten within 2-3 days. If desired, you can freeze baked nuggets. Be sure they are in a freezer safe, covered container or storage bag. They will be good for 2-3 months.

Thank you for sharing your recipe. I've been looking for a chicken nugget recipe in the hopes of swapping out the shop bought ones for something more healthy.

I've pinned it for later.
