Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Fried pieces of mystery meat are a favorite in our home. Biting into those warm nuggets it seems like you're eating some fabulous poultry. Take a peak at what's inside the fried breading, while licking your greasy lips, and you might think otherwise.

Did you know that there is 17 grams of fat per serving in those tasty nuggets? Even with the nutrition content in question, it's hard to deny your kids these delicacies. I buy them too often myself.

However, I have a great baked alternative that is simple, nutritious and delicious. 

The ingredient list:
Bread Crumbs - Plain and/or Italian
Olive Oil
Garlic Salt
Chicken breasts

Preheat your oven to 350.

Cut your chicken breasts into bite size chunks.

You'll need 4 bowls.

Prepare your bread crumbs.
      ~ One bowl is Italian crumbs.
      ~ The second bowl is plain crumbs and garlic salt, 1-2 tsp. (pepper optional)

The milk and olive oil each go in separate bowls.

Set up an assembly line to your greased baking pan. 

Dip your chicken in the milk or olive oil and then into the bread crumbs. Put on the cookie sheet. Press the crumbs on the chicken to coat them well. Use whatever liquid and crumb combination you'd like (my favorite is Italian).

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, until done and looking crispy.

You can also flash freeze and store your nuggets in the freezer. Microwave or cook in oven to thaw.

No greasy film on your lips after you eat these. Just real chicken goodness! Enjoy.
