Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Monday, February 8, 2016

My kids could eat chicken nuggets everyday...and never complain. But going to Chick fil a can be expensive and I don't think McDonald's chicken nuggets are really even chicken. In order to satisfy my children's craving for these tender little nuggets of goodness; I started making my own. They are not only better tasting and healthier, but way more affordable!

I usually buy a whole pack of chicken breasts at Sam's club and make them all into chicken nuggets. Not only do my children love them but my husband and I do also. I love putting them in my salads and they go great with our favorite homemade mac and cheese!

By the time you would go to wait in line and order some greasy chicken nuggets you could have already made these at home. My favorite thing about these is that they are baked and the clean up is so easy...really!


Chicken Breasts
Egg/ or buttermilk for dipping chicken into.
Bread crumbs. We like Italian.
Olive oil


Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil. Coat with olive oil.
Cut up chicken breasts lengthwise in half. Making them thinner. Then cut into smaller pieces to your liking.  I usually use a shallow dishes to put the egg wash/ buttermilk and breadcrumbs in. Dip into beaten egg or buttermilk. Really both work great! Then coat in breadcrumbs. Lay in pan and cook for 15- 20 minutes. Turning over in the middle of cooking.

See, wasn't that easy!?
Not only will your kids think you are amazing but your bank account will also!

My kids love to eat them with our homemade honey mustard sauce.

  1. HI
    I am following you from Sitting Among Blog Friends. Good to meet you. We don't eat any grains but I could make this with coconut flour and tapioca flour. Great idea to bake them and store them for later.

  2. These look so yummy. I am going to have to try these. I post all posts to my interest board so I will have these in my back pocket. I love how you shared your response when the kids don't like what you made. I usually tell my kids this is not a restaurant. I do however stick to things we all like because they eat pretty well.

  3. Oooh, Rebekah, these look scrumptious! My kiddos would go crazy over these!

    Pinning to my Deliberate FOOD board.

    Thanks for sharing.

  4. These look so delicious!! Thank you for sharing your honey mustard recipe too! :)
