Usually it drives me crazy when people post reviews of recipes they have changed so much it hardly is even the same recipe that it began as. Hopefully I did not go TOO far, but I do acknowledge I changed quite a few things in this recipe. Anyways, for my breading I used 1/3 cup of regular bread crumbs, 1/3 cup of Panko, about 3 TBS of granulated Parmesan, a few shakes of seasoned salt and 1/2 TSP of the following: black pepper, cayenne pepper, thyme, parsley and basil. I wanted to cut some of the calories/cholesterol, so I used around 1 cup of 2% milk with a few TSP of white vinegar and eighty-sixed the eggs as well as the oil in the breading. I used 2 very large chicken breasts (probably 1.75 lbs) which I cut in half the long way before cutting into bite sized pieces. Several reviewers suggested cooking these longer, so I decided to cook them for 20 minutes, I was making mashed cauliflower and forgot to take them out until closer to 25 minutes, but they were perfect. Also, I baked them on a rack I placed over a cooking sheet so they would not be soggy on the bottom or require me to flip them. Whipped up a very easy honey mustard sauce to go with these -- about 60/40 spicy brown mustard and honey respectively then flavor it with black pepper to taste and add a little mayo at a time until the consistency is perfect – but obviously that is just my preference. Great recipe, it is beyond me how as of now this is not the highest rated nugget recipe on the site!
