What’s for Dinner: Homemade [Baked] Chicken Nuggets

These homemade [and baked!] chicken tenders couldn’t be easier to make. I quickly made these for lunch today, and my family loved them.

Basically what I did was:
I took cube boneless chicken breasts and cut them into even, thin pieces [for uniformed cooking time].

I then marinated the chicken with:

  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • ginger powder
  • cayenne pepper
  • chili powder
  • red pepper flakes
  • onion powder
  • non-stick cooking spray

Line your baking tray with foil, and spray non-stick cooking spray on the foil.

Coat the chicken pieces with a combination of seasoned panko and Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs. Transfer them onto your foil tray.

Once your chicken nuggets are all on your baking tray, spray a nice layer of non-stick cooking spray on top.

In a preheated 425 degree oven, bake for the nuggets for 10 minutes. Next, flip them each over, and bake for another 6 minutes.

Serve with ketchup, or your favorite sauce…. and my [also baked] seasoned fries, of course!
