Baked Thai Chicken Nuggets

The flavors of Thailand in a crispy bite-sized chicken nugget!

Ingredients

2
pounds chicken breast cut into bite-sized pieces
1
cup Progresso™ panko bread crumbs
1/2
cup Gold Medal™ All-Purpose Flour combined with 1/2 teaspoon salt
2
large eggs, lightly beaten
Asian sweet-hot chili sauce for dipping

For the Marinade:

1/4
cup soy sauce
1
tablespoon garlic, finely minced
1
tablespoon ginger, finely minced
2
teaspoons lemon juice
2
teaspoons brown sugar
1
teaspoon Thai red chili pepper, finely minced, seeded and membranes removed
1
tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped

Directions

  • 1 Combine the ingredients for the marinade and pour over the chicken in a medium bowl. Stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • 2 Place the breadcrumbs, flour, and eggs in 3 separate shallow bowls.
  • 3 Pick the chicken pieces up one at a time, letting the excess marinade drip off, dredge in the flour to thoroughly coat, dip in the egg, then dredge in the breadcrumbs to thoroughly coat all sides. Place the chicken pieces on a lined cookie sheet. Repeat for remaining chicken. Spray the breaded chicken pieces with a little oil to help browning.
