As much as our 18-year-old selves would hate on us for this, we can’t always be eating deep-fried foods. In this artery-clogging lifestyle, sometimes baby steps are necessary to move towards the occasional healthy dish. Take these Baked Chicken Nuggets, for example.
Clean Eats came up with a savory Baked Chicken Nuggets recipe that you can enjoy without any deep-frying necessary.
All you need is some cubed chicken breast pieces, olive oil, bread crumbs, panko, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Coat your chicken in the oil and then begin breading them in the dry ingredients. Place them evenly on an oven rack and let them cook for 20 minutes at 425 degrees.
Serve with whatever dipping sauce your heart desires. We’ve always been fond of Thousand Island.
