Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cooking Time: 15-20 minutes | Total Time: 30-35 minutes


4 whole chicken breasts, skinned and deboned
1/2 cup unseasoned fine bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon thyme (or 1/4 teaspoon powdered thyme)
1 teaspoon basil
1/2 cup melted butter

Cooking Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper for easy cleanup.

Cut the skinned and deboned chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces, creating nugget shapes. Set aside.

In a shallow dish, combine the bread crumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, salt, thyme, and basil. Mix well to ensure the flavors are evenly distributed.

Dip each chicken nugget into the melted butter, coating it thoroughly.

Roll the butter-coated chicken nugget in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to ensure the crumbs adhere to the chicken.

Place the coated nuggets on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each piece.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the nuggets turn golden brown. Flip the nuggets halfway through cooking to ensure even browning.

Once cooked, remove the golden chicken nuggets from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.

Serve the Golden Chicken Nuggets with your favorite dipping sauces, such as ketchup, honey mustard, or barbecue sauce. They also pair well with a side of crispy fries or a fresh salad.
