Oven Baked Chicken Nuggets

Nothing beats the real thing. Am I right? Taking advantage of grocery store’s sale on chicken is a great way to make homemade versions of your favorite chicken meals. One meal that my family loves is chicken nuggets.

These nuggets are made from fresh quality ingredients like chicken breasts, bread crumbs and seasonings, not pink slime. Here’s a healthier oven-baked recipe that your family will love to turn to when they need a quick meal.

Oven Baked Chicken Nuggets


  • 3 chicken breasts, skinless
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon season salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 egg
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, cheese and seasonings and set aside. In a small bowl, add egg and turn with fork until mixed well.
  3. Cut chicken breasts into 1-2-inch sized pieces.
  4. Dip chicken pieces into the egg, then coat with the seasoned breadcrumb mixture.
  5. Place chicken pieces on a lightly greased cookie sheet in a single layer. I will also spritz some olive oil on top of chicken nuggets to help them crisp up in the oven.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
