{Recipe} Baked Chicken Nuggets

OK, these are AWESOME. I love kiddie food and ate a lot of it before J moved in simply because it is easy and delicious. Well these were easy, delicious, and a much more fun (not to mention healthy) way to eat a piece of boneless skinless chicken. The only problem I had was portion size. I made 2 pieces of chicken thinking there were 2 of us eating.  These little suckers were so good, eating the equivalent of one piece of chicken was not enough!!! I had zero desire to eat the vegetables that I made to go along with these. Thanks to Gina at Skinnytaste for this fantastic new meal.

Serves: 2
Cook time according to Gina: She doesn't say
Cook time according to Rachel: 30 minutes!
How hard was this for Rachel to make? EASY

2 skinless boneless chicken breasts
6 tbsp whole wheat Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
baking spray

Note: I used shaved Parmesan because that's what I had. Stick with grated.


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut pieces into tiny pieces. Season with salt & pepper. In 1 bowl put the olive oil. In another bowl combine bread crumbs with Parmesan cheese.
Place a few pieces of chicken in the bowl with the oil and mix well so the oil evenly coats the chicken. Then place the chicken in the bowl with the crumbs & cheese and coat well. 
Place evenly on a greased baking sheet. 
Bake chicken pieces for 8-10 minutes. Flip nuggets over and continue baking for an additional 4 minutes or until cooked through. 
Serve with dipping sauce of your choice. Enjoy!
