BAKED CHICKEN NUGGETS

  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (OR substitute boneless, skinless chicken thighs)
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs (Panko adds an extra crunch!)
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • ½ cup butter, melted

Directions

  • Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Step 2

Cut chicken breasts into 1 1/2-inch sized pieces. In a medium bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, cheese, salt, thyme, and basil. Mix well. Put melted butter in a bowl or dish for dipping.

  • Step 3

Dip chicken pieces into the melted butter first, then coat with the breadcrumb mixture. Place the well-coated chicken pieces on a lightly greased cookie sheet in a single layer and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
