Easy Homemade Chicken Nuggets Recipe: Skip the Fast Food & Make These Crispy Chicken Tenders at Home

My chicken nuggets are better than theirs (you know who I'm talking about)! Yep, I said it. Just say no to fast food and make these delicious homemade chicken nuggets in 30 minutes or less. So simple, and the whole family will love these tasty tenders. These crispy chicken nuggets make an easy lunch, dinner or even a fun snack.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 6 to 8


Here’s how to make them:

  1. In a gallon-size plastic zipper bag, add the yogurt or ranch dressing – or a combo of both. (I like ranch best!) Add the Italian seasoning if you’re only using yogurt.
  2. In another gallon-size plastic zipper bag, add the cereal. Smash into large crumbs.
  3. Season the chicken with the spices on the front and back. Dip into the wet ingredients to completely coat, and then dip into the dry ingredients to completely coat.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked, turning at the midway point.
  5. While the chicken bakes, make the dip by combining equal parts of the mustard and honey.

Chef Gigi Gaggero, I love this tip and forget how simple this is for a quick and easy meal! To make a gluten-free version, simply use gluten-free corn flake cereal. Be aware: the major corn flake brand uses malt which is derived from barley so therefore not gf. Most of the organic brands are gf. Always check the label.

Wow, these sound fantastic, Chef Gigi Gaggero! And thank you, Amy Fothergill, for the GF add on!!
Chef Gigi Gaggero, Our 30Seconds Resident Chef
Rite!! Amy Fothergill we get so busy during our days - we forget about the little things. I can't wait for you and the kids to try this , Gluten Free! Let me know what you think . Making it with Gluten Free Glutino pretzels would be so delicious!! YUM!
Amy Fothergill
Haha! Me too. Just ate half of an avocado and am trying to ignore the peach scone on the counter!

Love your pretzel idea, Chef Gigi Gaggero! And good to know, @amythefamilychef. Both of my daughter's are eliminating gluten to see if it helps some issues they're having. Ashlee Smith @Annkatie.smith
Amy Fothergill
Donna John let me know if they need help. My experience is that you have to be 100% to get results. It's the only thing that worked for both of my kids. Also, it can take a while. Could be gluten + a vitamin deficiency.
Meredith Schneider
Mmmmmm Chef Gigi Gaggero! Gotta make these for my 4 kids! I make chicken strips like this but nuggets would be even BETTER! Fast food free here for 5 years! Homemade is so much better.
Chef Gigi Gaggero, Our 30Seconds Resident Chef
Wow! That is GREAT news!!! 5 years ! That is a beautiful thing!
My kids - 21/22 yrs old still won't indulge . Setting good food habits now does really follow them into the future ! Wish I can high-five you right now ! Meredith Schneider
