I have been so busy the last little bit. School is getting into the final crunch-time and it seems like my blog posting has been VERY few and VERY far between. I am very much looking forward to a christmas vacation and some relaxing time spent with friends and family back home. I am starting to feel more than a little burnt out with everything at school and my brain needs a little break! My cooking, baking and blogging are pretty well the only thing keeping me sane these days!
I made these little homemade chick nuggets far too long ago and am just getting around to posting them now. Even though it's been a while, I still remember how delicious they were! Super tasty and fun to make, plus they're a LOT healthier than store-bought chicken nuggets and the kids (and adults) will love them just as much :)
Enjoy the recipe, and have a good week!
Homemade Chicken Nuggets
Bake Time: 20mins Yields: 24-30 nuggets
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2/3 cup soda cracker crumbs
1) Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly grease a baking sheet, set aside.
2) Cut each chicken breast into bite-sized pieces. Place in a medium bowl and set aside.
3) In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the butter on high in 30 second increments until it is completely melted. Add worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and mix. Drizzle mixture over the chicken and stir to coat the chicken completely
4) Put your cracker crumbs into a plastic ziploc bag. Taking a few pieces of chicken at a time, place them in the bag with the crumbs and shake to coat the chicken. Place the coated chicken pieces on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all the chicken has been coated.
5) Bake chicken for 20 minutes, until crisp and golden. Cool on a wire rack and serve.
