More About This Recipe
  • These chicken nuggets are baked to golden perfection and great for party apps or an easy dinner. 

    Imagine chicken nuggets that are infused with the flavors of Thailand. Only these nuggets have the crispiness that only panko breadcrumbs makes possible and instead of deep-fried in all the fat, they’re baked to crispy perfection. Sound good? They are, and you’ve gotta try them!

    Super quick and simple to make, the marinade is whipped up in two minutes and the chicken is left to do its marinating while you go about your work or fun. Then the chicken is dipped in flour, egg and breadcrumbs and slid into the oven. You’re done! Then all you have to do is pull out your favorite sweet-hot Asian dipping sauce and enjoy.

    Great for parties and entertaining, game night, lunch or dinner, these Baked Thai Chicken Nuggets are both delicious and fun to eat!

    First, gather up your ingredients.

    Combine all the marinade ingredients in a small bowl.

    Pour the marinade over the chicken in a medium-sized bowl and stir to coat the chicken. Cover and let marinate in the fridge for at least four hours, or overnight.

    Place the egg, flour, and breadcrumbs in three separate shallow bowls. Take one piece of chicken at a time, letting the excess marinade drip off, dredge it in the flour to thoroughly coat, dip it in the egg, then dredge it in the breadcrumbs to thoroughly coat all sides. Place the chicken pieces on a lined cookie sheet. Repeat for all of the remaining chicken pieces. Lightly spray the chicken with some oil to help facilitate browning.

    Preheat the oven to 400ºF and bake the chicken for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and done.

    Serve with your favorite Asian sweet-hot chili sauce!
