When you think of chicken nuggets, you probably envision some foamy, processed meat with a greasy crust that you dunked in ketchup as a child.
These Chicken Cordon Bleu Nuggets
are not those nuggets.
In fact, these nuggets are not even distantly related to those nuggets. They’re cheesy. They’re crispy. They’re juicy. They are the happy meal that grew up. And got married to some cheese and ham.
I actually tried stuffing the chicken nuggets, but in the end, it was easier to “sandwich” the cheese and ham in.
If you stick a toothpick in, it make them easier to coat and keeps them together.
Dunk them in the flour first.
Then in some eggs beaten with some water.
And finally, a nice coat of breadcrumbs.
I think the Progresso Italian Style breadcrumbs are pretty swell.
Give them a good spritz of cooking spray and then toss ‘em in the oven. While they’re cooking, grab your side dish. I used a bag of this broccoli and just threw it in the microwave. It’s delish.
And that’s all there is to it. Dive in!
