(7 Votes)
15 Min

Why pay for packaged or fast-food chicken nuggets when you can enjoy restaurant-quality versions of the dish right at home? Buttermilk Chicken Nuggets are fast and easy.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup Italian-flavored bread crumbs
  • 1 (1-ounce) package dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper, optional
  • 1 egg
  • Cooking spray
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine chicken and buttermilk; mix well.
  3. In a resealable plastic storage bag, combine bread crumbs, dressing mix, and ground red pepper, if desired; seal bag and shake to mix well.
  4. In a shallow dish, beat egg well. Drain chicken and add to egg, turning to coat. Place chicken in storage bag; seal bag and shake to coat chicken.
  5. Place breaded chicken on a rimmed baking sheet and coat lightly with cooking spray. Bake 15 minutes, or until no pink remains and juices run clear.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

No one in my family liked these except myself. They are entirely too salty and the Grandkids didn't like them at all.

These tast so good! Grandkids love them too!

i hate ranch dressing.

so why are telling us ?

do you like chicken nuggets???

I recommend using Italian (a little less than required, it's much more wet) I don't use Ranch, Either. :) -that might be 'helpful.'

We can't fix stupid.

Simple and looks delicious, I want to try it.
