HEALTHY Baked Chicken Nuggets

Be sure and join me on Facebook for the latest updates on new recipes! 

I am always on the look out for new lunch foods for my toddler.  She is a very picky eater and I would love to have her get the most nutrition possible.  These HEALTHY Chicken Nuggets were a winner for both of us!  She gobbled them right up!  (I may have, too!) These would also be great for a Healthy Superbowl Snack! When I think of Super Bowl foods, I think of fast finger foods that are easy accessible and that people will love…and I think these would be a great option if you are looking for a healthier alternative!For more ideas on Super Bowl Appetizer/Treat Ideas click here!

HEALTHY BAKED CHICKEN NUGGETS
recipe from: Skinny Taste

16 oz (2 large) skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into even bit sized pieces
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp olive oil
6 tbsp whole wheat Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
2 tbsp panko
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
olive oil spray

 

Preheat oven to 425°. 
Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray.
Put the olive oil in one bowl and the breadcrumbs, panko and parmesan cheese in another.
Season chicken with salt and pepper, then put in the bowl with the olive oil and mix well so the olive oil evenly coats all of the chicken.
Put a few chunks of chicken at a time into the breadcrumb mixture to coat, then on the baking sheet.
Lightly spray the top with olive oil spray then bake 8 – 10 minutes. Turnover then cook another 4 – 5 minutes or until cooked though.

  1. I made these for our Super Bowl lunch. I linked back to you in my post. My husband was truly pleasantly surprised! He said, "I didn't expect them to be so good." He's very picky so that is a wonderful compliment to you! Thank you for contributing to our healthy Lunch! :)http://www.toquascrafts.com/2012/02/super-bowl-lunch.html

  2. These were so good! Had them tonight! They will be replacing the other homemade nuggets that I was making which were fried, way worse! :) Thanks!
