Panko Baked Chicken Nuggets

We all know how unhealthy chicken nuggets can be right? Well not anymore with this no fuss and simple recipe.

Chicken nuggets can be fried and breaded in many different ways making them even unhealthier so this is an easy and fast alternative for those famous chicken nuggets that are very popular among kids :-) This one is very popular in my household!

Anyhow, there isn’t that much to say about this recipe. You can season the breadcrumbs as you wish and use this with a firm fish as well. I have done that before using tilapia and it works wonderfully.



Baked chicken nuggets

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 4 servings


1 1/2 lb chicken breast, cut into cubes,  I buy mine organic
2 eggs, beaten
2-3 cups panko breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt



Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a square baking pan. ( I use a deep rectangular one)

Set up a breading station with one bowl for the eggs and one for the breadcrumbs, oregano and salt. (feel free to season panko breadcrumbs as you wish).

Bread each chicken piece by coating it in the egg, followed by the bread crumbs. Place in the baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes turning chicken halfway through.

Serve however you wish. I accompanied mine with some green beans :-)

    I make the same thing, but don’t bake it for anywhere near as long. Ten minutes on one side, turn over, and five on the other. Make sure to spray some veg spray before baking, and when you turn them over. In my experience, the short baking time guarantees that they will be really moist.

    I do grease the baking pan prior and also bake the chicken a bit longer but at a lower temperature. We like it this way better but you can cook the chicken a shorter amount of time if you prefer at a higher temperature. I guess it is just what one’s prefers :-)
