Breading doesn’t have to be a 3 step process and chicken nuggets don’t have to be something you buy pre-made in the freezer section. These easy chicken nuggets take minutes to put together and your kiddos will love helping make them.
1 ½ lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 cups Panko bread crumbs
½ tsp dried mustard
1 tsp seasoned salt, like Lawry’s
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut chicken breasts into 1 ½ inch cubes.
Place bread crumbs, dried mustard, and seasoned salt in a large zip top bag.
Add chicken cubes. Seal the bag, keeping plenty of air in it. Holding it firmly at the top, shake the bag, tossing the chicken cubes around until they’re all coated in bread crumbs.
Place the breaded chicken cubes on the prepared wire rack, making sure the nuggets don’t touch each other on the rack. Spray the nuggets with cooking spray.
Bake for 15-20 mins. or until chicken is cooked through.
Tips on Chicken Nuggets
- To help this dish come together even faster, chop raw chicken into cubes right after you buy it. Freeze it flat in a zip top bag and be one step closer to having dinner on the table.
- Do NOT rinse the chicken before tossing it with the breadcrumbs.
- Using Panko breadcrumbs will give the nuggets a great crunch.
While the nuggets are cooking, make a quick batch of White Wine Sangria.
