chicken nuggets

Once you start making your own chicken nuggets, you will never go back to the processed store kind.  These are made with real chicken breast and you can make a huge batch up in a matter of minutes, freeze your extras and have some quick fix meals in the freezer ready for those busy nights.

You will need the following to make this:

  • 5 cups corn flakes, crushed or put in food processor till slightly smaller
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast, cut up into bite sized chunks
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 4 large eggs, beaten

Assemble these on different plates.

On plate 1 put crushed corn flakes, parmesan cheese, salt, onion, garlic, and pepper and mix with your hand.

On plate/bowl 2 beat your eggs into

On plate 3 put the flour

Then go assembly line and take your chicken coat in flour, dip in egg, and coat in corn flakes.

Place on a cookie sheet and freeze for later or cook 400 for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. Tried your chicken nugget recipe…with a few tweaks. I know it’s not as healthy, but I added additional flour, paprika and milk and made a dipping batter. Oh, and I had to use Frosted Flakes (hubby’s one vice) instead of corn flakes. I fried them in oil (as little as possible) and drained the excess on a paper towel. We, too, are trying to eat better by making our meals with basic ingredients. I was aiming for the crispy outside like Chick fil a. They turned out great. My teenager loved them and decided he doesn’t want the restaurant kind or store bought kind ever again. Made up some plain fries, too…delicious.
    I am new to your blog and I love it. I only have one left homeschooling (3 kids total). We are not a big family, but your common sense living ideas are
    right in line with what we have been trying to do here.
    Also, I have tried making the liquid laundry soap before using a similar but slightly different recipe. That one never came out right…yours did and it is great…wonderful and thick!
    I am having a blast going through your blog and finding so many treasures. You have also inspired me to make do with what we have or can find for free for my son’s final year of high school. Most curriculum purchases are a let-down anyway!
    I do have a question for you regarding teaching composition to your high schoolers…what did you use to teach this skill? I have tried many purchased programs with little or no success. I’d love hear how your high schoolers mastered the dreaded essay and research paper!
    Keep up the wonderful work.

    • I do, probably what most do not, we skip the dreaded essay papers. I have my daughter write papers on different topics and things, and I have showed her how to credit sources, but she hasn’t done a 25 page paper. My oldest is in her 4th year of college and I have not officially done anything with her either and she writes essays and research papers all the time. WE just learn as it is needed. I would google and look up some ways to teach it. If I knew she needed more on that then I would pursue it more. HOpe that helps and thank you so much. I am hoping to get more writing done and add more to the blog on our life. Be blessed.
