Baked Chicken Nuggets – Italian Style

My daughter just loves these homemade chicken nuggets.  They are really tasty and very quick and easy to make.  They are baked with Italian seasonings and Parmesan cheese – a delicious alternative to the fast food variety.  Serve them with a side salad and some marinara sauce for dipping and you are set for a kid friendly meal.


You will need:

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 cup of plain bread crumbs

½ cup of grated Parmesan cheese

1 tsp. garlic salt

½ tsp. black pepper

1 TBSP dried basil leaves

½ cup butter, melted


Preheat oven to 400 F.

Cut the chicken breasts into nugget size pieces.

In a medium bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cheese, garlic salt, pepper, and basil.  Mix well.

Put the melted butter in a small bowl.







Dip the chicken nugget pieces into the melted butter, then coat with the breadcrumb mixture.  You can use a fork to help press the breading onto the chicken.

Place the coated chicken pieces onto a lightly greased cookie sheet (in a single layer).

Bake for 20 minutes.

Serve with marinara sauce.
