Last night we had some yummy chicken strips for dinner. Everyone loved them. These can be made as chicken nuggets, that’s what the recipe is for. However, I don’t like to cut up raw chicken, so I buy frozen chicken tenders from Costco, and I use those whole. Here is the recipe:
Golden Chicken Nuggets
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup unseasoned dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp salt
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 cup butter, melted (1/3 cup oil can be substitued)
- Cut each breast into 6-8 nuggets, about 1-1/2 inches long.
- Combine bread crumbs, cheese, salt and herbs.
- Dip chicken into melted butter, then into crumb mixture. Place in single layer on foil lined baking sheets. Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes.
The chicken will take longer to cook if you start it frozen, like I am prone to do, lol. I want to make up a bunch of these and freeze them before baking. That way I will have my own yummy chicken strips ready to go in the freezer for those busy days.
