Baked Chicken Nuggets




These little beauties are a much healthier alternative to your fast food finds. You can eat these without feeling an ounce of guilt and are a perfect way to bring out the kid in any adult or even to serve to your little ones-- they won't be disappointed. Also, you can make a larger batch & freeze for later & a quick lunch when you're in a crunch. The husband is always beyond excited when he gets fried chicken and loved this version even though they were baked! You can mix and match the flavors in the breadcrumbs, such as adding coconut flakes, chili flakes for spice, Parmesan cheese for an Italian twist, experiment with it-- promise you'll have fun.This recipe uses minimal ingredients & is relatively quick to prepare, although, your hands might get a little messy ;)
