What's Cooking Thursday - Chicken Nuggets

Welcome to What's Cooking Thursday! A place for you to link up whatever it is you've been cooking at your house! Not a blogger? Leave your recipe in the comment section. Look for a featured recipe next week. Feel free to link up as many recipes as you'd like, all I ask is that you link back to What's Cooking Thursday!

My boys love chicken nuggets. I love the ease of preparing them. Pop open a bad, pop them in the oven, straight from the freezer and you're good to go for a quick lunch. Except most of the store bought ones are filled with all kinds of nasty ingredients. The good nuggets are really expensive.

So I've compromised. We make chicken nuggets at home. White, breast meat chicken nuggets. Coated in homemade bread crumbs. Yummy and healthy.

You'll need:
1 pound chicken breast
 1 cup bread crumbs (day old bread in a food processor for a minute)
optional - egg to dip the chicken in (I didn't use this)

Cut chicken into nugget sized pieces. Roll around in bread crumbs so that the chicken gets covered. Place in a baking dish. Bake at 425 for 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked thoroughly. Serve.

These also freeze well. To reheat, bake at 425 for 10 to 15 minutes or until warmed. Or nuke in the microwave for a few minutes.

{Unfortunately, the linky service I used has deleted my previous linkys. So there is no featured recipe this week. Check back next week for featured recipes.}

Now it's your turn! What have you been cooking up this week?
