Baked Chicken Nuggets

I have been trying to cook out of my pantry to avoid spending more money on groceries this month and I wanted a quick easy meal the other night so I found this delicious recipe in my Southern Living fast family suppers recipe book. It was so quick and easy and I had everything I needed at home! I LOVE chicken nuggets. They are one of my favorite comfort foods. If you have kids they will love this and it is a great alternative to frying chicken nuggets.

What you Need:
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup of fine bread crumbs
1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp of dried basil
1/2 tsp of dried thyme
1/4 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup of melted butter

How to make it:
1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Take your chicken and cut it into about 1 inch size pieces, this is not an exact science( you could also buy chicken tenderloins and make strips instead.)
2. Now place all of your dry ingredients in a heavy duty ziploc bag, and shake it up till it is mixed well
3. Dip each chicken piece into the butter and cover completely then place in the bag and shake.
4. Place each breaded piece on a greased baking sheet, and then bake for 20 minutes and you are done!

It is so yummy, just serve it up with your favorite sauce and side dishes.

We had steamed english peas and PW's mac and cheese with it.

Happy Cooking!
