These easy chicken nuggets are crispy, healthy, and delicious!
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup flour
  • 2 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a large cookie sheet with cooking spray, and set aside.
  2. Trim the fat off of the chicken breasts, and cut into "nugget-sized" pieces. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix panko bread crumbs, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, paprika, and onion powder.
  4. In another bowl, crack egg, and whisk together with a fork.
  5. In final bowl, dump in the flour.
  6. Dip a piece of chicken into flour, then into the egg, then into the breadcrumb mixture. Make sure it is well coated, and press the crumbs into the chicken, to attach as many as possible. Set onto cookie sheet, and repeat with all nuggets.
  7. Bake for 11-14 minutes, flipping halfway through. Nuggets are done when they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  8. Serve with ketchup, or your favorite dipping sauce!
