I personally love eating chicken nuggets and having a child means I have the chance to eat them even more. I prefer not to buy them pre-made though because the salt levels are sky high and they do not offer anything for a growing child.
However whenever you make your own they taste simply amazing and melt in your mouth as you take a bite. Though I should warn you now once you have sampled home made chicken nuggets you will never want to go back to the McDonalds chicken nuggets range again!!!
I love chicken nuggets from McDonalds but these homemade beauties below are in a different league and is so much fun to make them with the kids and watch their faces light up when they see what they have personally made with you!
So here is my golden chicken nuggets recipe:
4 whole chicken breasts, skinned & boned
1/2 c. unseasoned fine bread crumbs
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. thyme (or 1/4 tsp. powdered thyme)
1 tsp. basil
1/2 c. butter, melted
1. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. Mix the dry ingredients.
2. Dip the chicken into the butter, then into the crumb mixture.
3. Bake on foil-lined cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Serves 8 to 10.
I hope you enjoy making them as much as I did!
To your food heaven
