No-Nonsense Chicken Nuggets

Makes 4 Servings

Chicken nuggets are perfect when you’re in a pinch but a lot of the frozen brands out there are made with processed chicken and a thick layer of greasy breading. With No-Nonsense Nuggets you know exactly what you’re getting.

3 cups corn flakes 

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch of pepper
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into nugget-size pieces
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, beaten

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly oil or coat a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. Place the corn flakes in a Ziploc bag and crush to a fine texture using a rolling pin or the bottom of a small saucepan, or place in a food processor and pulse several turns until finely crushed. Combine with the Parmesan cheese, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper in a medium bowl. To bread the chicken, coat in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in the egg, then coat well in the corn flake mixture. Arrange the chicken on the baking sheet and cook until golden brown, about 12 minutes.
