Ingredients

  • 1 pound 1 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 cup 1 shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 plain breadcrumbs

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 onion powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 paprika

  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

  • 2 large 2 eggs, beaten

  • Cooking spray or vegetable oil, for baking or frying

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) if baking, or heat a skillet with vegetable oil over medium-high heat if frying.
  • In a bowl, combine the grated Parmesan cheese, plain breadcrumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create a seasoned breadcrumb mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the two large eggs.
  • Take a piece of chicken and press a small amount of shredded cheddar cheese onto it. The chicken pieces should be about the size of a chicken nugget.
  • Dip the cheese-coated chicken piece into the beaten eggs, ensuring it’s well coated.
  • Roll the egg-coated chicken piece in the seasoned breadcrumb mixture, pressing the breadcrumbs onto the chicken to adhere.
  • Place the coated chicken nugget on a baking sheet if baking or directly into the hot skillet if frying. Repeat this process with the remaining chicken pieces.
  • If baking, lightly spray the nuggets with cooking spray to help them brown and become crispy.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until the nuggets are golden brown and the chicken is cooked through. If frying, cook the nuggets for 2-3 minutes per side until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  • Remove the Cheesy Chicken Nuggets from the oven or skillet and let them cool slightly before serving.
  • Serve the nuggets with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ranch dressing or marinara sauce, if desired.
