Chicken Nuggets:

These homemade chicken nuggets are super easy and super yummy!
Whether you are a gluten-free eater, and miss chicken nuggets, or you simple want to make them at home, this is the place for you!! My sister started making these years and years ago, and we never get tired of them!
We like to dip them in ranch dressing, ketchup, mustard (honey mustard) and even Arby's sauce and steak sauce!!
I hope you give them a try!

3 cups crushed cornflake crumbs
1 & 1/2 cups grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
6 teaspoons dried basil
6 teaspoons dried thyme
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Mix altogether and store in an airtight container in the freezer.

To Make chicken nuggets, you'll need:

Desired number of chicken breasts
1-2 eggs
Crumb mixture

Beat the eggs and place in a shallow dish. Cut the chicken into nuggets or strips. Pour a small amount of the breading mixture in another shallow dish. Dip the chicken pieces in the egg first, allowing excess to drip off. Roll in breading mixture until evenly coated. Place on a greased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces, adding more egg and breading mixture to the individual dishes as needed. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until chicken in no longer pink inside. You can flip the chicken pieces over half way through the baking time, if you want. Sometimes the top of the breading will get golden brown, but the bottom will be soft.
