    Place into a greased baking dish.

  5. 5

  6. 6
    Bake, uncovered at 400°F for 30 minutes or a bit longer for outside crispiness.


  1. Oh yum! I've been using a packet crispy crumb coating, but it comes out a bit too salty. This way I can control the amount I use.

  2. at least you know what is in these, unlike shop bought junk. nice one

    1. Thank you he loves his chicken nuggets and eats so many he will look like one .x

  3. these look great...I think my kids would be easily fooled into thinking it was KFC! Thanks for linking up to Foodie Foto Friday x

  4. These look delicious and so much better than bought. My kids love them too, I won't buy the bought ones, it never looks like real meat!

  5. These look really yummy! My little man loves chicken nuggets but I never know what the "chicken" really is. I do love making my own recipe for the coating but sometimes it's a bit too spicy for him so will try yours out!

  6. Those look really yummy I will have to give them a try!

  7. Oh that's very clever, would have never guessed to add the crispy rice, I usually use the homemade bread crumbs. Thank you for the tip!

  8. These look yummy! We make a similar version a lot, but yours look much darker than ours (in a good way!) will have to give your version a go!

  9. I LOVE chicken nuggets but I hate the fact that bought ones look so unlike chicken! I'll definitely be making these. Thanks for sharing!
