Baked chicken Nuggets are a great way to enjoy chicken nuggets without frying up! How to make the best baked chicken nuggets with Parmesan and panko crumbs for a 5 star dinner.

Author: MomDot
What You Need
  • 3 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  1. You can prep this meal in under 5 and bake for just 20, making this a simple under 30 minute dish that will make not only the parents happy after a long day but give you a perfect homemade meal to gather around.
  2. To get started on your homemade chicken nuggets, preheat oven to 400 degrees F, which translates to 200 degrees C. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
  3. Starting with already defrosted boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut them into approximately 1.5 inch chunks. You do not need to take too much care into making them all perfect, but keep around the same size so you know they cook evenly. Set your chicken nuggets aside.
  4. Now in a bowl, mix your bread crumbs (I like to use Panko), Parmesan cheese, and all your various spices. Stir well and then set aside.
  5. Melt your 1/2 butter, taking care not to burn, in a separate bowl. This will be used to coat your chicken, so make sure its large enough to add your chicken.
  6. Dip your chicken into your butter and then follow with your spiced breadcrumbs, making sure to coat both sides of your chicken.
  7. Drop your chicken onto a greased cookie sheet, spaced slightly apart, and bake for approximately 20 minutes. Oven times may vary depending on altitude and size of chicken.
