Oven Fried Chicken Nuggets

"You won't believe how good these are. I have used them as a weeknight dinner or even for a New Year's Eve party. They are fantastic! Just don't forget to spray them good with cooking spray before cooking."

  1. This is a great recipe! I have been trying to find a good oven baked nugget recipe for a while. I love the simplicity of this. Even my husband was very happy. Thanks for a keeper!
  2. Easy with good results. Seems hard to mess this one up. Not exactly popping with flavor, but kids don't need it to be. Thanks to other review about spraying the foil, I used tons of spray there and on top of the chicken nuggets. No sticking problems.
  3. very good, super easy. will make again. left out paprika. thanks.
  4. Very tasty. My DH said it tasted sort-of like KFC, which is the highest praise from him:). I thought it was just a bit too salty, so I will probably add just a bit less salt next time. Also, be sure to spray the foil lining the pan with oil -- I did and still had a little trouble with them sticking. I will be more liberal with the sprary next time. Thank you for a tasty recipe!!
