Chip Chicken Nuggets

Tried these for dinner group tonight and they were easy, fun, and yummy. All the boys loved them and I love anything that presents lots of options... Plus, the kids can easily help make them. They stay nice and crunchy in the oven. I found the recipe on Allrecipes.

4 Boneless, skinless Chicken breasts (except I snuck in some thighs for kicks and giggles), cut into 1 inch cubes
1 Egg
2 Tbsp. Milk
Assorted Seasonings to taste, like salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic salt, etc.
2 Cups Crushed Chips (Any flavor! That's where the fun comes in... we tried Lay's Sour Cream and Cheddar and they were fab, but we'll try Doritos next time...)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a large baking sheet... or cover with foil if you're lazy like me and want to save on clean-up...

Crush Potato chips finely. (My 4 year old did a great job of this by using the chip bag as a punching bag...)

Whisk together milk, egg and seasonings.

Dip Chicken in Milk and Egg mixture and then coat well in crushed potato chip mixture. Spread onto baking sheet.

Bake 10 minutes and then flip over. Bake ten more minutes.

Serve with dipping sauces, like ranch, ketchup, or honey mustard.

A fun twist I saw on Allrecipes... Find some wooden skewers or popsicle sticks and put a couple nuggets on each one, like a chicken nugget lollipop. Makes a great appetizer and is extra fun for the kids.
