Awesome Chicken Nuggets

Finished product - yum!
About three years ago I saw how fast-food chicken nuggets were made and I have not been able to touch one since. That is why I am so excited to share this recipe with you. These nuggets have a crispy whole wheat exterior and are are made with organic chicken breasts. Our whole family loved them, especially when dipped in homemade honey mustard (equal parts mayo, mustard, honey). I served these nuggets with sweet potato fries - a perfect combo!

Homemade Chicken Nuggets

1 lb  organic boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 egg, beaten
Ingredients prepped and ready to go.
1 c seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs
1/3 c shredded parmesan cheese/
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper
olive oil 

In a large fry pan, heat about 1/4" oil over medium low heat. Cube chicken in 1-2" pieces and set aside. In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, seasonings and cheese. Place nuggets of chicken in egg mixture and then in the breadcrumb mixture and then transfer into hot pan. Cook over medium low heat 4-5 minutes per side flipping occasionaly until golden brown and the center is no longer pink. (Cooking time will depend on the size of your chicken so check the first couple you do before serving.)
