Baked Chicken Nuggets
Parmesan Baked Chicken Nuggets - Best nuggets with real chicken & Parmesan, no deep-frying. The easiest baked chicken nuggets recipe ever
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, approximately 1 lb. (0.4 kg)
- 1 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan
- 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs lightly beaten cooking spray
Spicy Ketchup Dipping Sauce:
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 3 tablespoons sriracha or any spicy chili sauce
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
Combine all the ingredients for the Spicy Ketchup Dipping Sauce and chill.
Preheat oven to 400°F (207°C). Cut the chicken into 1.5-2 inches pieces. Set on a dish.
Spread panko in a thin layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for about 3 minutes in the middle rack, until light brown. Transfer the panko to a shallow dish and mix in the Parmesan and coarse salt. Drizzle the oil and mix well.
Set out the flour and eggs in separate dishes. Increase the oven temperature to 450°F (218°C). Place a wire rack on the baking sheet, lightly coat with cooking spray.
In small batches, coat the chicken in flour, shaking off any excess, dip in egg, and lastly coat well with panko. Transfer to the rack. Bake the chicken until desired tenderness, about 12-14 minutes, turning when halfway through. Serve nuggets with the Spicy Ketchup Dipping Sauce.
I made these exactly as the recipe stated, except I forgot to put oil in with the panko and cheese, but they still came out delicious. I dipped mine in a homemade “firecracker sauce.”
