"Chicken-Cow Place Nuggets"

If you were to ask my boys where they love to eat, they would both say in unison: "The Chicken-Cow Place!" (Chick-fil-a.) As you can imagine, with a strict budget, eating out can become very expensive. To fix this dilemma, I started making our own nuggets like those served at the "Chicken-Cow Place." I hope your kiddos enjoy them as much as mine do!

Home style Chicken Nuggets

Chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
1 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. seasoned salt
Sesame seeds (optional)
1/2 c. margarine or butter, melted
1/2 c. milk
1 egg

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using a baking sheet (I use a large stoneware pan,) pour 3/4 of melted margarine on to bottom of pan. Spread evenly.

Mix all dry ingredients together in a gallon ziploc bag. In a medium sized bowl, mix milk and egg. Next, dip cut up chicken pieces into egg mixture. Transfer chicken to ziploc bag. Shake to coat chicken generously.

Remove chicken from ziploc bag. Place on butter-coated baking sheet. Place in oven for 35-40 minutes. Halfway through baking time, remove the chicken from the oven. If there are any dry patches of flour on the chicken, use the remaining butter to coat. Watch closely. Baking times will vary depending on the size of the chicken pieces.

I obviously didn't watch mine closely enough! LOL.*

These nuggets are great with home made rice-a-roni, corn, and a yummy dipping sauce. I usually mix honey and ketchup in a small bowl to make the dipping sauce. My kiddos (and hubby) eat these right up! They are a huge hit at our house. Enjoy!
