Baked Chicken Nuggets

We bread and bake asparagus so often, that it was time to venture out and try something new to bake. I think we made a wise decision to start with chicken nuggets!'s a healthy option!

16 oz (2 large) skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into even bite size pieces
Salt and Pepper, to taste
2 Teaspoons Olive Oil
6 Tablespoons Bread Crumbs
2 Tablespoons Panko Breadcrumbs
1 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
2 Tablespoons Grated Parmesan Cheese
Olive Oil Spray

This recipe also works with italian seasoned bread crumbs.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray.

Season chicken with salt and pepper.

Put the olive oil in one bowl and the breadcrumbs, panko, italian seasoning and parmesan in another.

Put the chicken in the bowl with the olive oil and mix well so that the olive oil evenly coats all of the chicken.

Take the chicken, one piece at a time, and place into the breadcrumb mixture to coat.

Place the chicken on the baking sheet and lightly spray the top with olive oil spray.

Bake 10 minutes, then turn over and cook for another 4-5 minutes.
