Easy and Delicious Homemade Chicken Nuggets

These Chicken Nuggets are a hit in our house, I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

About 1lb Chicken Breasts Cut Up

Ritz Crackers Crushed, about 1 1/2 rolls or 1 3/4 Cup (I never measure I just crush and use as needed)  
1 Cup Buttermilk

  1.  Cut chicken pieces into nugget size pieces
  2.  Marinate Chicken in 1 Cup buttermilk for up to 2 days (I've done it both for 20 minutes and 2 days, either way they turn out wonderlicious)
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  4. After marinating, crush the Ritz crackers
  5. Shake off excess buttermilk and coat the chicken with Ritz Crackers. (I use a spoon so my hands don't get all sticky and gooey)
  6. Put chicken on a lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees

1. Cut Chicken Breasts into little nugget pieces

2. Put Chicken pieces in a container and pour 1 cup buttermilk over and make sure they are all covered. Seal and let sit in the fridge for up to 2 days. (I've let it marinate for 20 minutes and 2 days, both of them turned out wonderlicious!)

3. Crush Ritz Crackers
4. Coat Chicken Pieces and Bake at 425 Degrees for 20 minutes.

6. Serve and Enjoy!

**After the Chicken Nuggets are coated with the crackers you can freeze them and use for later use**
**If Cooking from frozen add an extra 5 minutes**

(I'll double and triple this batch and freeze some for later use because they are so popular in our house)

Pour some Yellow Mustard in a bowl and mix in Agave to your taste... DELICIOUS!

I found this recipe on the Food Network by Nigella Lawson
