  • 500g (1 lb) boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 large eggs
  • 60g (2 oz) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Method of Preparation

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a shallow bowl, beat the eggs until well combined.
  3. In another shallow bowl, mix the grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper.
  4. Dip each chicken piece into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off, then roll it in the Parmesan mixture until fully coated. Place the coated chicken pieces on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the coating is golden and crispy. For extra crispiness, you can turn on the broiler for the last 2-3 minutes of baking.
  6. Remove from the oven and let the nuggets cool for a few minutes before serving.

Tips for Culinary Success

  • Ensure the chicken pieces are uniformly sized for even cooking.
  • For a spicier kick, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the Parmesan coating mixture.
  • Serve the nuggets with your favorite dipping sauces like sugar-free ketchup, mustard, or ranch dressing.
