Chicken Nuggets - OAMC

Recipe by JillAZ
READY IN: 45mins




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Cut chicken into slices and then into "nugget" sized pieces.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the ranch dressing and the milk.
  • put chicken pieces into bowl with milk mixture.
  • Crush the ritz crackers into fine crumbs. I use my food processor.
  • Place cracker crumbs and paprika in a large zipper type baggie. Seal and shake to mix together.
  • Place a few of the chicken pieces into the bag of coating mix. Seal bag and shake to coat.
  • Place nuggets on prepared baking sheet.
  • Repeat until all chicken has been coated.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is done.
  • Remove from oven and cool. I like to flash freeze before placing in a freezer bag and freezing.
  • To serve:
  • Place frozen nuggets on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 5-10 minutes or until heated through. You can heat in the microwave, but they don't turn out as crispy.
  • Note: Flash freezing just means to place the items on a baking sheet, not touching, and put in the freezer until firm. This keeps them from sticking together in one big clump.
