Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets

My two year old loves chicken nuggets, probably as much as any two year old. I haven't really found a kid that doesn't and I babysit lots of kids. I wanted to make a healthier chicken nugget than the Mickey Mouse shaped ones I buy from Costco but I wanted the flavors to appeal to an adult as well. These ones were just the ticket. Adding the Montreal Seasoning really makes these more grown up.

These nuggets would be great as an appetizer to any party, especially a kids birthday party. These would be a great, healthy addition to all the cake and ice cream! Serve with barbeque sauce, ketchup or ranch and it's good to go.

Baked Chicken Nuggets

3 skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into even bit sized pieces
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp Montreal chicken seasoning
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup panko
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Cooking spray (Pam)

Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet. Put the chicken, salt, pepper,Montreal seasoning, and olive oil in a bowl and mix until all the chicken is evenly coated. Place the breadcrumbs, panko and parmesan cheese in large bag. Put half of the chicken at a time into the breadcrumb mixture to coat, then on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the top with olive oil spray then bake 8 - 10 minutes. Turn over then cook another 4 - 5 minutes or until cooked though.
