Sunday in the Kitchen - Baked Parmesan Chicken Nuggets

These were pretty tasty and much healthier than the store bought chicken nuggets.

15 oz (2 large) skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into even bit sized pieces
salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp olive oil
6 tbsp golden breadcrumbs
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
Pam olive oil spray - 4 second spray
1/2 tsp inion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray.

Put the olive oil in one bowl and the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and all three seasonings in another.

Season chicken with salt and pepper, then put in the bowl with the olive oil and mix well so the olive oil evenly coats all of the chicken.

Put a few chunks of chicken at a time into the breadcrumb mixture to coat, then on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the top with olive oil spray then bake 8 - 10 minutes. Turn over then cook another 4 - 5 minutes or until cooked though (I cut through a piece to make sure it's done on the inside).

Serve with a dipping sauce or dressing.
