Baked Chicken Nuggets Recipe is brought to YOU by Fred Meyer Stores.

Thank you!

My family loves chicken nuggets from the fast food restaurants, even tho we don’t eat there often.  One day, I had this awesome school lunch idea that came to my mind.

Make bunch of baked chicken nuggets and freeze them so I can warm them up and put them in the school lunch box. It will be one of those easy school lunch ideas that my child will devour.

I am one of those moms who loves to cook almost everything from scratch, except macaroons, I rather buy them at the Fred Meyer Store, than waste ingredients making this dificult but super delicious dessert. You see those little cookies never turn out right when I bake them.

What I am trying to say is this, if you want to safe time and frustration you can always go to the store like Fred Meyers Store, and buy things that you love.

Now, back to this scrumptious baked chicken nuggets recipe. You might think they are super hard to cook, but in reality they are absolutely easy to make.

This is one super easy chicken nuggets recipe. The chicken breast is cut into bite size pieces and marinated in the mayo & pickled juice, coated in seasoned flour and baked until golden color.

They taste incredible, specially if you let the chicken marinate over the night, or more than 1 hour.

These homemade chicken nuggets taste amazing with honey mustard sauce.

How to Cook Chicken Nuggets – 2 Ways:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with a parchment paper. Quick Tip – spray the parchment paper with oil, it helps baked chicken nuggets not to stick to the paper. Place chicken nuggets on a baking sheet and bake for 20-35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked thru. 3 minutes before chicken nuggets are done cooking I like to broil them on high for about 3 minutes.
  2. Preheat the skillet with about 1 cup of oil (like peanut oil or avocado oil), add chicken and fry until golden color about 2-3 minutes. Serve warm with honey mustard sauce.

I like to freeze these CHICK-FIL-A inspired Chicken NUGGETS, then microwave them right before my daughter leaves to school and wrap them in the foil paper, so they stay warm.
