Oven-Fried Honey Chicken Nuggets

This was inspired by Brooke’s Oven-Fried Honey Chicken. I had some chicken tenders to use up and decided to make chicken nuggets out of them. We had these with Annie’s Organic Mac & Cheese and green beans. Sort of a grown up kiddie meal, I guess. It was a really easy & fast weeknight meal.

Oven-Fried Honey Chicken Nuggets

1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 cups dried bread crumbs (I used Panko bread crumbs)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (I used cooking spray)
1 pkg/1 pound fresh boneless, skinless chicken tenders, cut into bite sized pieces.

Preheat oven to 375°F.In shallow bowl, whisk together honey and vinegar. Pour bread crumbs into separated bowl. Set bowls aside. Spread oil over foil-lined baking pan large enough to hold all chicken pieces in one layer. Roll chicken pieces in honey mixture, then in bread crumbs; place in pan. Bake for 30 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly.
