• Chicken Nuggets

     

    A great big thank you to Sara from our Facebook community who shared this wonderful recipe for chicken nuggets from Weelicious that her son loves!

    Ingredients:

    • 1 pound chicken breasts, boneless & skinless cut into chunks
    • 1/4 cup old fashioned oats (also known as 5 minute oats)
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
    • 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese, grated

    Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
    2. Place the first 6 ingredients in a food processor until chicken is finely chopped and ingredients are combined.
    3. Place the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in a shallow bowl or on a plate and stir to combine.
    4. With moistened hands, roll 1 tablespoon of chicken mixture between your palms and flatten it into a “nugget” shape.
    5. Gently press nuggets into bread crumbs to evenly coat them.*
    6. Place nuggets on a cooling rack. Place cooling rack over a foil-lined baking sheet.
    7. Lightly spray nuggets with cooking spray.
    8. Bake for 15 minutes and serve.**

    * To freeze, place nuggets on a sheet tray after this step and freeze for one hour. Place nuggets in labeled freezer bags for up to 3 months. When ready to cook, follow the directions starting with step #6.

    ** If you want your nuggets to be golden brown, place under the broiler for 2 minutes after cooking.
