Homemade Baked Chicken Nuggets
(2 large) skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into even bit sized pieces
salt and pepper to taste
3-4 tsp olive oil
5 tbsp whole wheat Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
3 tbsp panko
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
olive oil spray
Preheat oven to 425°.
Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray
In one bowl, combine panko, breadcrumbs, and parmesan cheese.
In a separate bowl, put the olive oil.
Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.
Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces-think Chic-Fila nugget size!
Dip a couple chicken pieces into the olive oil, and then into the breadcrumb mixture.
Then place on baking sheet.
Finally, briefly mist the nuggets with olive oil spray.
They're ready to bake now! Bake for 8-10 minutes, then turn over, and cook another 4-5 minutes!
We love to add a baked sweet potato or sweet potato fries as a side, but you can also do a salad or some mixed veggies.
