Hey there! My girls love love love chicken nuggets. Its the only meat I can get down my picky eaters mouth. I decided to make ones from home instead store bought in our quest to a healthier lifestyle. Still probably not the healthiest but at least not stuffed with preservatives right?
So here goes.
Oven-Fried Chicken Tenders
3/4 cup oil (your choice)
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg beaten
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 lb chicken breast cut into tenders
salt and pepper to taste
1. Place roasting pan in oven, add oil. Preheat to 425 degrees
2. Whisk buttermilk and egg until well blended. Combine flour, and seasoning into shallow bowl. Dip chicken in flour mix, then buttermilk, then again into flour mixture. Place on a plate in a single layer. (if it seems moist, put into flour mixture once more)
3. Place chicken in roasting pan in oven, bake 8 minutes on each side. (the recipe said 6, but I like my chicken well cooked so I did 6)
