Oven Baked Chicken Nuggets
I've had a hard time finding oven baked chicken nuggets that I really like but these actually fit the bill. Even my 10 month old son ate SIX of them...the same amount as his 3 year old sister. The teenage years are going to kill us.
~ 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
~ 1 egg, lightly beaten
~ 1 cup bread crumbs (I used Italian style)
~ 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (I used a fresh block of Parmesan over my zester)
~ 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
~ salt and pepper
~ 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces (I used thin-sliced chicken breasts)
~ cooking spray
1. Preheat your oven to 400. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Place egg in second shallow bowl. Combine bread crumbs, cheese, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in third shallow bowl.
3. Dip each piece of chicken into flour, then in egg, then roll in bread crumb mixture. Place on prepared baking sheet. Spray chicken with cooking spray.
4. Bake for 25 minutes or until nuggets are browned and cooked through.
