The best (and easiest) homemade chicken nuggets! Both kids and adults love them.
  • 1½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 3 chicken breasts), cut into bite-sized pieces
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup panko bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • olive oil spray (like Pam or other non-stick cooking spray)
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Spray a large baking sheet (I used a 15x10x1" cookie sheet) with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Pour olive oil into a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together bread crumbs, panko, and Parmesan cheese.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper on chicken, then place all the chicken pieces in the olive oil. Mix around until they are all coated with olive oil.
  5. Place the chicken into the bread crumb mixture (I did about 10 pieces at a time) and mix around until they are completely coated with bread crumbs. Place chicken on baking sheet and repeat until you are coated all the chicken.
  6. Lightly spray the chicken pieces with non stick cooking spray and place baking sheet in the oven.
  7. Cook for 8 minutes, then turn all the pieces over and cook for 8 more minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees.
