Ridiculously Easy Homemade Chicken Nuggets Recipe

Kid and adult friendly homemade baked chicken nuggets. They are so easy, and you only need three main ingredients to make them!

You Will Need

1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast or thighs

5 ounces (3 heaping cups) favorite potato chips

1 large egg, see notes

Nonstick cooking spray or olive oil


    Heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, foil, or a silicone baking mat.

    Add the chips to a resealable bag then use a rolling pin to crush them into crumbles. Alternatively, add the chips to a food processor and pulse until crumbled. Add potato chip crumbles to a wide bowl. Beat the egg in a separate bowl.

    Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces (about 24 pieces). Then with one hand, dip a piece of chicken into the beaten egg. Shake any excess egg off to prevent soggy nuggets. Then, with your other hand or kitchen tongs, roll the chicken into the crushed potato chips and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining pieces of chicken.

    Spray tops of the chicken with nonstick cooking spray or add a light drizzle of olive oil to the tops of the nuggets. Bake for 15 minutes, flip the chicken and then bake until an internal thermometer inserted into the chicken reads 165 degrees F, and they are no longer pink inside, another 8 to 12 minutes more. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
