It's no secret that kids love chicken nuggets. But you don't have to go through a drive thru to get them.

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 15 min

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup Italian-flavored bread crumbs
  • 1 (1-ounce) package dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper, optional
  • 1 egg
  • Cooking spray
    1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

    2. In a large bowl, combine chicken and the buttermilk; mix well.

    3. In a resealable plastic storage bag, combine the bread crumbs, dressing mix, and ground red pepper; seal bag and shake to mix well.

    4. In a shallow dish, beat the egg well. Drain chicken and add to egg, turning to coat. Place chicken in storage bag; seal bag and shake to coat chicken.

    5. Place breaded chicken on a rimmed baking sheet and coat lightly with cooking spray. Bake 15 minutes, or until no pink remains and juices run clear.
