Cheddar Chicken Nuggets


Flavorful, filling, and a family favorite. These chicken nuggets are the perfect kid favorite adult meal! The recipe is a modified version if my Baked Cheddar Chicken another family favorite in our house. This version packs a tad more cheddar and crunch in a bite size package!

Full time: 1 hour
Serves 4-6

You will need:

1 1/2-2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 package butter crackers, crushed
1 stick butter
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar
1 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp onion powder
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt

Let us begin:

Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lightly spray foil with cooking spray and set aside.

Place butter in medium bowl and microwave 30-45 seconds or until melted. Set aside.

In a medium bowl combine crackers, cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, and salt. Set aside.

You want to remove any excess fat from the chicken prior to chunking it.

Next, chunk your chicken by cutting it into 1/2" pieces.

Place chicken pieces into butter and stir around to fully coat the pieces.

Move roughly 1/4 of the pieces into the cracker mixture and shake to fully coat.

Line pieces on your baking sheet, repeat until all chicken is coated.

Bake chicken in oven 35-45 minutes or until 180' is reached on your cooking thermometer.

Carefully remove from oven.

Move to serving plate and enjoy!
