  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast (2 large)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup FINELY grated Parmesan cheese the kind in the green can will work
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with non stick spray, set aside.
  2. Cut chicken breasts into smallish pieces (I usually make them roughly the same size as the ones you can buy from the store which is about a 2 inch nugget).
  3. In a shallow dish beat eggs with a small amount of water (about 1 teaspoon). In a separate shallow dish combine the panko, Parmesan cheese, seasoned salt and pepper. Dip each piece of chicken in the egg wash then into the panko mixture. Place on prepared baking sheet. Spray nuggets lightly with cooking spray and bake for 8 minutes turn each piece and bake 8 minutes or until cooked through. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
Recipe Notes

If you want your nuggets to have that nice golden look toast the panko before mixing it with the cheese, salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Cool before mixing with the cheese so it doesn't melt it.
