Being a mother to the world’s pickiest eater, each day is a struggle making sure my son is receiving proper nutrition. For this very reason, I try my best to create well-balanced and appetizing meals; after all, I want my son to enjoy his food while staying healthy. One of my son’s favorite meals includes chicken nuggets. Because I don’t want to fill his belly with processed foods, I’ve found a great alternative – Easy Homemade Baked Chicken Nuggets. Made with just 3 ingredients, you’ll love these tasty nuggets just as much as your kids.

Easy Homemade Baked Chicken Nuggets
– 1 pound of chicken
– 2 eggs
– 1 1/2 cup bread crumbs (my favorite is garlic and herb seasoned bread crumbs)

2. Place beaten eggs and bread crumbs in two separate bowls.
3. Dip individual pieces of chicken first in the egg mixture and then bread crumbs.
4. Arrange nuggets on a baking sheet.
5. Bake nuggets at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes (or until meat is no longer pink). Be sure to flip nuggets half way through baking process. Feeds 4-6 people.
6. Baked nuggets can be stored in the freezer and reheated at a later time.
7. Pair these Easy Homemade Baked Chicken Nuggets with Alexia Smart Classics Roasted Crinkle Cut Fries with Sea Salt.
