Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Chicken nuggets are a real kid-pleaser! Adults will enjoy this recipe for a tasty appetizer, too! Serve warm, with your favorite dipping sauces if desired.

3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon dried basil

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon salt

½ cup butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Cut chicken breasts into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan, basil, thyme, and salt together well in a medium bowl. Put melted butter in a bowl or dish for dipping.

Dip chicken pieces into the melted butter first, then coat with the bread crumb mixture. Place the well-coated chicken nuggets on a lightly greased cookie sheet in a single layer.

Bake nuggets in the preheated oven until browned and chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes.
