Ah Chicken Nuggets. The ultimate kid food. Growing up, if my mom really wanted to make sure that dinner went off without a hitch, she would turn to chicken nuggets. My sister and I would be so busy eating that we would finish our dinner without the obligatory fight over who got to watch their favorite TV show afterwards. To this day I still enjoy a plate of chicken nuggets every now and then but my version gets a kick from some sriracha, crunch from panko and forget the fryer, these babies are baked not fried.
I know there are probably some chicken nugget purists out there saying to themselves “but…but…chicken nuggets are supposed to be fried.” But you wanna know a little something, they are actually really good baked too. And with this recipe, you don’t have to worry about a lack of crunch, the panko in this recipe helps give a little crunch to each tender bite of chicken.
I have to confess that I dipped these in ranch, because well, I love chicken nuggets with ranch but an equally good dip would be sweet and sour sauce. Enjoy!
