Baked Chicken Nuggets


recipe adapted from here
Ingredients 
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced into bite size pieces 
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
1/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs, white or wheat
1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs 
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 
Olive Oil Spray

Method  
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a shallow 13 x 9 baking dish (I used a small cookie sheet) generously with olive oil spray. Pour 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil into a small mixing bowl. In a separate mixing bowl whisk together Italian seasoned bread crumbs, Panko bread crumbs, parsley, salt and pepper. Place chicken pieces into olive oil and toss chicken to evenly coat. Drop oil coated chicken, working with about 5 pieces at a time, into bread crumb mixture and coat each side (I kind of pressed the pieces into the bread crumbs to get more to stick).  Place all of the coated chicken pieces onto oil coated baking sheet then sprinkle remaining bread crumb mixture over chicken pieces. Spray top of chicken pieces with olive oil spray.  Bake in center of preheated oven for 10 minutes, then remove from oven, rotate chicken pieces to opposite side and bake an additional 5 minutes . Serve warm with ketchup, barbecue sauce or honey mustard for dipping, if desired.
