How to Cook Chicken Nuggets – 2 Ways:

 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.

 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.



Happy Cooking!
