The Talking Kitchen

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into nugget pieces
  • 3/4 c. panko breadcrumbs 
  • 1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp pollo seasoning 
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika 
  • 2 eggs
  • dash hot sauce (optional)
  • 1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour 
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • oil for coating baking sheet

Preheat oven to 425 degrees and grease a baking sheet with ~1 Tbsp oil.
Start by setting up the seasoned breadcrumbs, eggs+hot sauce, and seasoned flour stations, each with their own plate 
Working in batches of 5-7 nuggets, lightly coat in flour, shake off all excess, then transfer to eggs. Let all excess egg drip off before transferring to breadcrumbs to coat. 
From the breadcrumbs  place the nuggets directly on the greased baking sheet. Sprayed the baking sheet and over the nuggets- if just using oil, put about a tablespoon rubbed all over the baking sheet, place the chicken nuggets on and flip so each side has some oil before going into the oven, when you flip halfway through baking you can determine if you want a little more oil.
