Baked Herbed Chicken Nuggets

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Dine Dish

This is a tasty way to make chicken nuggets at home! My kids like things with a kick, so they enjoy these, but if yours don't then simply omit the red pepper!

I omitted the red pepper (because my pickiest child will not touch it!) and these turned out quite nicely. I liked the wheat germ flavor a lot, but I didn't think this made quite enough coating for 4 chicken breasts. We enjoyed them a lot, though! Thanks KC! I'm so glad I took your dare, it made for a good kid friendly meal with some baked fries.
