My kids all love chicken nuggets, they love to dip them, eat em and ask for more.  I on the other hand have a hard time with most brands of chicken nuggets… so instead we make our own.  They are whole pieces of chicken, moist, full of flavor and only take a few minutes to make.  Prep and cooking time, you can be done in less than 30 minutes! Once you make these your kids will never asked for the boxed nuggets again.

You will need:

 

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 cups crushed corn flakes
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ranch dressing mix (dry)
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 1 cube butter (melted)

In another bowl combine the crushed corn flakes, ranch dressing mix (dry) and parmesan cheese. Take the chicken cubes out of the butter and roll them into the corn flake mixture and set them on a baking sheet. If you like a thicker coating you can PRESS the chicken into to corn flakes and this will create a thicker crust.  Leave a little bit of room between the chicken for even cooking.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 16-18 minutes till chicken is cooked (cook to 170 degrees).  Enjoy!

I make a version of these all of the time. I use Rice Krispies instead of cornflakes. I use Ranch mix, but I've never added parmesan cheese...thanks for the idea! I will definitely add that next time! This is the only homemade chicken I can get my oldest to eat.
