YUMMY! I’m making some comfort food tonight Going to try out this recipe for herbed chicken nuggets and since Steve is working nights, I’ll make enough that I can freeze them to cook later too!
Herbed Chicken Nuggets
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 tbsp water
- 1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes (I’m not going to use these since I don’t have any!)
- 1/2 cup dried bread crumbs, seasoned
- 1/2 cup wheat germ
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 425F / 220C. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Trim any fat from chicken and cut into 1 inch cubes. In a bowl, beat the eggs with the water and add the chicken. Combine the parsley, thyme, red pepper, bread crumbs, wheat germ, basil and ground pepper. Stir in the oil with a fork and mix well to distribute evenly. Pour seasoning mixture into a resealable bag and the chicken pieces to coat.
Place coated chicken on the prepared baking sheet and bake at 425F for 10 minutes. Turn the pieces over and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
I’m going to make these with some fries!! And of course, TONS of vinegar.
