Oven-Fried Honey Chicken Nuggets

Remember, two more days to enter the giveaway!


I've had this recipe ready to post for quite some time. It actually brings back a great memory because Bob made it for us! Bob's a great cook but rarely has time to practice his craft. Dinner just tastes better when someone else makes it, at least that's what my mom says :)

We really loved this recipe. There's a nice sweetness from the honey, and the balsamic adds another element to balance the flavor. I love cooking with toasted panko - it makes a nice, crispy crust. These chicken nuggets are healthy and quick to whip up. They are great by themselves or dipped in your favorite sauce!

Oven-Fried Honey Chicken Nuggets

Ingredients:
1/2 cup honey
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 cups Panko (or dried bread crumbs)
Olive oil cooking spray
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375F.
1. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Spray with cooking spray.

2. In a shallow bowl, whisk together honey and vinegar. Set aside.

3. Place bread crumbs in a small saute pan and toast lightly over low heat for about 3 - 4 minutes, until lightly brown. Transfer toasted bread crumbs to a shallow dish or pie plate.

4. Dip chicken in honey mixture, then roll in bread crumbs. Place on prepared baking sheet in a single layer.

5. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes, or until cooked through.

  1. I love that there's only a few ingredients to this, yet they sound like they'd hit the spot! Panko is SO good and even better toasted like you said.

  8. Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you will not have a leg to stand on.............................................

  10. These sound great with the honey and balsamic! I've made similar ones but they were plain. Also, I baked them on a cooling rack set in the baking pan, which helps them to stay crispy on all sides... you might like them that way too. I dipped mine in honey when I ate them, but honey under the crumbs would be amazing!
