Baked Chicken Nuggets

One of my downfalls in life is McDonald's Chicken Nuggets. For some strange reason, I love them. When I found a recipe (which my husband actually found) that tasted similar and even better I was stoked. I have already made these multiple times. They are also easily frozen and eaten when in a pinch. Great news. 


3 cups corn flakes
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
pinch of pepper
1 lb boneless chicken breasts
1/4 cup flour
2 large eggs

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the chicken into nugget sized pieces. Put the corn flakes in a food processor and process until crumbs are formed. Add Parmesan cheese, salt, onion and garlic powder, and pepper. Pulse until combined (this could also be done in a large Ziploc bag if a food processor is not available). 

Put the eggs in a small bowl and whisk together. Put the flour in another small bowl. Dip pieces of chicken in the flour, then the eggs, and finally the corn flake mixture*. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes until done. 

*Chicken nuggets can be frozen at this point. Still place on an baking sheet or plate and freeze for 30 minutes before putting in a freezer safe container.
