Chicken Nuggets

3 chicken breast, cut into 1 inch strips
1/2 cup butter
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. paprika

Prepare a cookie sheet by putting aluminum foil on it (for zero clean up) and spraying it with PAM. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cut up chicken breast into 1 inch strips. Put aside.
Melt butter in microwave in a bowl. While butter is melting place remaining ingredients into a large baggie.
Place chicken strips into butter than into baggie (about 5-7 at a time). Coat the chicken well. Pull chicken out of baggie and place on baking sheet in a single row. Once all the chicken is complete, put in oven for 15 minutes per side. Remember to flip at 15 minutes. Remove and serve hot.

Serves 4 people

NOTE: I really like this Chicken Nugget recipe. It is healthy (not the super processed stuff you get in the grocery store freezer), but is also delicious. You can also add 1 TBSP of ground flax seed if you want to make it healthier. It can be eaten by parents and children alike. I usually serve it with French Fries and no veggies. I haven't found a veggie I really like it with it yet. I also haven't found a kid who won't eat it yet. Also like Michelle, I tend to make these in bulk and stick the in my freezer just before the cooking part. It is a great freezer meal. I do recommend if you freeze them that you freeze them on a cookie sheet for 2-5 hours before you stick them in a baggie to freeze. This way they don't get stuck together. It is also great because then you can just pull them out of the freezer and cook when you are on tight schedule or get home late and it is still a home cooked meal.
