I’ve been craving chicken nuggets a lot, lately. Particularly the hormone-injected dinosaur shaped ones. Yum. But before we had the opportunity to run to the store and buy some, I had the idea to make them myself.
Baked Chicken Nuggets
1 chicken breast
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup Italian style bread crumbs
1. Preheat oven to 450
2. Cut the chicken into 1″ chunks, removing all fat
3. Crack an egg into a bowl and whisk it a bit, and put the flour and bread crumbs in separate dishes. (Measurements are flexible, I just shake a little bit in, and add more when I need it.)
4. Coat the chicken, in order, into the flour, egg, then bread crumbs
5. Place onto a sprayed pan, and bake for 10 minutes, until chicken is white in the middle and the coating starts to get a little toasty.
This recipe served the two of us comfortable with a large chicken breast, but could easily be doubled, or tripled… depending how much you like chicken nuggets 😉
Also, I haven’t tried it, but you probably could freeze them and reheat them later! Let me know if you try it.
