Last night for dinner we made homemade chicken nuggets. No more processed, frozen nuggets for this family. These turned out so good. They were crispy and flavorful. I served them with a side of homemade BBQ sauce and roasted asparagus.
Homemade Chicken Nuggets
First, cube your chicken up into chunks
Put the cubed chicken into a bowl and squirt some mustard on them. I used French’s Spicy Mustard as it doesn’t contain any sugar. Toss the chicken pieces until they are well coated.
I used some Wasa Crackers (3 of them because I was making three batches of 4oz of chicken) and put them into my blender and blended on high to make them into a crumb. If you’re not following the hcg diet, you could use panko or regular bread crumbs.
Put the bread crumbs on a plate and dredge each piece of mustard chicken in the cracker crumbs.
Pop them on a baking sheet (I always line mine with aluminum foil)
Bake in a 400 degree, pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes. I did not turn my over half through and they came out with just the amount of crisp on them.

I’ve recently started making my own chicken nuggets. Now my kids don’t want the ones out of the bag LOL. Stopping by from the link up on the Long and Winding Road
