Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets

This picture turned out terrible, but just know these tasted delicious! I put little toothpicks on the table so my kids could stab their nuggets and dip them. We all loved how they tasted! Thanks, Gina at Skinny Taste for yet again, another great recipe that's healthy!

  • 16 oz (2 large) skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into even bit sized pieces
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 6 tbsp whole wheat Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp panko (these are Japanese-style bread crumbs. I found them in the ethnic aisle)
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • olive oil spray
Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray.

Put the olive oil in one bowl and the breadcrumbs, panko and parmesan cheese in another.

chicken with salt and pepper, then put in the bowl with the olive oil and mix well so the olive oil evenly coats all of the chicken.

a few chunks of chicken at a time into the breadcrumb mixture to coat, then on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the top with olive oil spray then bake 8 - 10 minutes. Turn over then cook another 4 - 5 minutes or until cooked though.
