Homemade chicken nuggets

Chicken nuggets get such a bad wrap. Mostly because, when purchased from a fast-food restaurant they are packed with preservatives and fried in oil. This recipe is so simple (look! only 5 ingredients!) and takes just minutes to prepare.

Easy Homemade Chicken Nuggets

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp onion salt
  • 1 1/2 cups italian breadcrumbs
  • nonstick cooking spray

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine chicken and egg together. Roll a tablespoon of the chicken mixture into a ball, then press it to about 1/2 inch thick. Coat gently with breadcrumbs, then transfer to a baking sheet which has been lightly greased with nonstick cooking spray. Continue until all chicken has been used. Spray the tops of the breadcrumb-covered chicken nuggets with a thin layer of cooking spray. Place cookie sheet in the oven and bake for 12-14 minutes, or until the nuggets have cooked all the way through. Serve with your favorite ranch dressing or barbecue sauce.

Made these tonight, they were very good and easy. The only thing different was it took about 30 min for them to cook and I turned them half way through. Crust was crispy and the meat was still juicy. Thanks!
