I was playing around in the kitchen and this is what I came up with, so I decided to share it with you. These nuggets go well with a sweet chili sauce. Enjoy!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut in bite-sized pieces
  • oil for frying

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine panko bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a food processor; blend until finely crushed. Put panko mixture in a bowl.
  2. 2 Whisk eggs and milk in a separate bowl to make an egg wash. Place flour in a bowl.
  3. 3 Coat chicken pieces in flour; dip them into egg wash. Press into panko mixture to coat, shaking off excess.
  4. 4 Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Fry chicken in batches, until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 3 to 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Chef's Notes

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.


  1. Terrific recipe. Crispy crunchy delicious crust and very tender chicken. I'm not a frying fan, so I baked these on a cookie sheet at 400 for about 10 minutes (I used chicken tenders). My grandkids (14 and 11) loved them, as did their parents. And they're so easy! I think I'll be making these often.
  2. Very good. Even my picky grandson liked them.
  3. Yummy but very messy!
  4. Really easy recipe and very flavorful. Also very moist and juicy. I made it with chicken tender strips and it was wonderful!
  5. Made exactly according to recipe. Served with Trader Joe's Sweet Chili Sauce - wonderful!
  6. this is the best coating i have done for anything! the chicken was great! and it was perfect when i deep fried cod. definite keeper
  7. Used buttermilk instead of milk 1C mixed flour 1 1/4 C in with buttermilk and 1 egg topped with crushed panko breadcrumbs. Eliminated parmesan. Great recipe! Paired with Homemade Onion Rings. Cooked in Corn Oil
  8. Really good! For our family of 4 (teens & adults) this recipe only served 4 not 8 because it is so yummy! I didn't need a whole cup of flour 3/4 cup or even less would have been more than enough. Perhaps my pieces were bigger than intended. I used 2 large eggs and it - Read more ...
  9. These are excellent! Once you try this recipe you will never be able to go back to eating frozen prepared nuggets again. On that note I wanted to share something helpful here. I had all of my chicken coated and was frying in batches when something came up. I stuck the ones I hadn't got - Read more ...
