Baked Chicken Nuggets

11:02:00 AM

1 Sleeve Ritz Crackers
1 Package of seasoning of your choice - I have used taco, Ranch Dressing Mix, and Italian dressing Mix
2 eggs
4 Tsp. Water
2 C Flour
1/2 Stick (1/4 cup) Butter
3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts cubed into bite size pieces - OR Boneless Skinless Chicken Tenders - approx. 18

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a Gallon Size Ziploc bag, smash the saltine crackers to pieces.  Both fun and therapeutic.
3. Mix in with the saltine pieces the package of seasoning of choice.
4. On a large baking sheet (cookie sheet - if you are from Utah), melt the butter in the oven.  Once melted, remove the pan from the oven to prevent the butter from burning.
5. Combine the eggs and water - mixing until frothy.
6. Dredge the chicken in the flour, then dip in egg wash, then throw into bag of crumbs/seasoning.
7. Coat Chicken with crumbs, and lay on to the baking sheet (in the melted butter)
8.  Bake the nuggets for 10 minutes, then turn them over and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
9.  Drain on paper towels if needed. (Never have needed to yet...)
