Baked Chicken Nuggets


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or tenders, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 cup flour

  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 egg, lightly whisked
  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp. dried basil
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

Rinse chicken and cut into 1-inch pieces.  Prepare three bowls for coating. Combine flour, salt and pepper in first bowl. Add egg in second bowl. In third bowl, combine breadcrumbs, basil and Parmesan cheese. Feel free to add extra seasonings to adjust the flavor.

Dredge pieces of chicken in flour and shake off excess. Next, place chicken in the egg bowl and let excess drip off.  Lastly, place in breadcrumb mixture and coat completely.

Place on greased baking sheet and cook 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
