Easy Chicken Nuggets

This might be a nice choice for kids to make for Mom. Easy to make and so much better than what is served at fast food places. I often make a big batch and freeze some for later.

Chicken Nuggets

1 egg

3 T. milk

1 t. dried parsley

1/2 t. paprika

1/2 t. salt

1/4 t. pepper

1/4 t. garlic powder

1 lb. boneless chicken, cubed into 1-inch pieces

bread crumbs- about a cup

oil

Combine egg with milk and seasonings in a bowl and mix with a fork until smooth. Add the chicken to the egg mixture and stir to coat well. Using a fork remove the chicken pieces and drop in the breadcrumbs, rolling to coat evenly. Place breaded chicken pieces on a baking sheet. Drizzle with a little oil and place in a preheated 450 degree oven. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until juices run clear and chicken is cooked. Serve with barbecue sauce, sweet and sour sauce, honey  mustard or whatever dipping sauces you like. Serves 3-4.

To freeze for later use you can freeze raw or cooked- I prefer to freeze the nuggets raw and cook when needed. Place nuggets on a baking sheet and place in freezer until hard. Place in freezer container. When using frozen uncooked nuggets- bake in a 425 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
