Healthier option for a kid-friendly dinner! Easy homemade chicken nuggets, breaded and baked in an air fryer.
When done, check if the internal temperature of chicken nuggets is at least 165 degrees F. Remove nuggets from basket with tongs and set onto a plate to cool.
Serve with steamed or roasted vegetables or fruit salad and yogurt.
This recipe makes about 21 chicken nuggets from one chicken breast. You can double and use two chicken breast and make 42 nuggets, which is comparable to the amount you get in a bag in a grocery store.
You can use plain breadcrumbs, however I prefer Italian style.
The amount of calories does not include Parmesan cheese, which is optional.
