Homemade Baked Chicken Nuggets


I tend to feed my toddler pretty healthy but I always keep some back up foods in my pantry and freezer like chicken nuggets, fish sticks and Mac and cheese for those busy days that I don’t feel like cooking. Tonight was one of those nights! So I went to my freezer for chicken nuggets…and there was NOTHING 😭. So I ended up cooking when I didn’t want to BUT I’ll have these nuggets to heat up over the next few days and I know exactly what ingredients went into them. Even better!!

🔹2 chicken breasts, cut into nugget sized pieces.
🔹bread crumbs, enough to coat chicken pieces (I used a combo of zesty bread crumbs and graham cracker crumbs)
🔹1 egg
🔹1/4 cup milk
🔹Tony’s Creole seasoning
🔹salt and pepper
🔹garlic powder
🔹olive oil

🔷Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
🔷In a dish mix together the egg and milk then season with salt and pepper.
🔷In a separate dish combine bread crumbs, Tony’s, and garlic powder.
🔷Coat chicken pieces in egg mixture then in bread crumb mixture.
🔷Place nuggets on a baking sheet then spray tops of chicken nuggets with olive oil.
🔷Bake for 10 minutes, flip nuggets over and bake for another 10 minutes.

*Makes enough for 4-5 people.
