Oven-Baked Homemade Chicken Nuggets (with parmesan crumb!)

Oh boy, oh boy! Am I excited to share this recipe with you, or what! Chicken nuggets are one of those things that totally divide me. On the one hand I love them (oh my gosh – how good are they!?), but on the other hand I get a bit freaked out by the weird greyish colour and texture of the ones you buy in the frozen section of the supermarket. Usually, my weird/freaked out side wins and so we hardly ever have chicken nuggets at home…. until now that is!

Homemade Chicken Nuggets

These homemade chicken nuggets are hands-down one of the yummiest things I’ve ever made. They’re so moorish.. I tried to stop at just a couple and failed miserably. I actually remember making my own chicken nuggets years ago, but then hadn’t made any for ages. You know how it is – you go through stages! But now I am well and truly back on the homemade chicken nuggets train… and these ones are WAY better than any I’e ever made before.

Homemade Chicken Nuggets

So there’s a few things that make these little nuggets so darn good. First of all, they’re made with real chicken breast – so there’s no weird greyish stuff going on! Second of all, the crumb is made from panko crumbs AND parmesan cheese which means it’s both super crispy and ridiculously tasty. And the third brilliant thing is that they’re oven-baked, so there’s no yucky frying going on.
