Trainer Recipe – Baked Chicken Nuggets

Molly Wichman IFBB Fitness Pro and Personal Trainer in Lee’s Summit, MO love to share healty recipes for  clients and the  community.  Try out this tasty recipe for Homemade Baked Chicken Nuggets for a family dinner.  They will pair great with sweet potato fries and green beans.   This is a kid approved recipe.

Homemade Baked Chicken Nuggets
Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 1 Large Chicken Breast (bolied or baked, don’t overcook or chicken will be dry)molly wichman fitness recipe
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese (optional)
  • bread crumbs (or ground oatmeal)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Place the cooked chicken breasts, egg and some salt in a high speed blender or food processor. Blend or pulse until smooth.
  3. In a separate large bowl, place the bread crumbs.
  4. If you want to add more flavor use some Parmesan cheese mixed with the bread crumbs. It works really well and the nuggets come out so delicious!
  5. You can add extra spices to the bread crumbs.
  6. Take out some of the blended chicken and form about 1 tablespoon of chicken mixture into a ball with your hands. If need, mix it using just a little bit of the bread crumbs to nicely form the ball. Or make fun shapes with cookie cutters. Finally roll them in the bread crumbs mix.
  7. Place on cookie sheet on top of greased parchment paper and bake at 375 for about 10 minutes, turning half way though if you want both sides crispy. Make sure you don’t bake for longer or they will come out dy.
  8. Serve with your favorite dip.
  9. You can also freeze and save some for later (before baking them)

3 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter) or regular butter, melted

For the cheesecake filling

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    • 2 eggs

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners and set aside.

In a bowl, add the graham cracker crumbs and melted ghee or butter and mix well.

Divide the crumbs between each of the muffin cups. Press down firmly to form a crust.

In a food processor, add all of the ingredients for the cheesecake filling. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
