My kids LOVE chicken nuggets. I always have a bit of a guilt complex because I don’t always know what is in those fast food ones. So I decided to start making them at home when I have the opportunity.

These chicken nuggets are SO simple and the flavor is so much more delicious than anything you can buy! The outside coating is sheer perfection. The panko is the perfect texture!

We love to dip these in the Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce recipe I provided in this recipe, but you can feel free to dip them in whatever sauce you’d like!

    Can these be frozen and reheated?

    I normally make bigger pieces of chicken and use the Panko breadcrumbs. I do use flour too. I find it does not adhere to the chicken. I noticed that you don't use flour. Do the egg whites take the place of the flour. Curious. My family would love them. Thank you

    These look fantastic! Can't wait to give them a try. I'll have to use gluten-free flour instead of panko, but keeping my fingers crossed!
