Chicken Nuggets

Welcome to the first of Retro Saturdays. Check back the first Saturday of every month for retro-inspired dishes.

Remember Shake 'n Bake? It's definitely a retro food, first introduced in 1965. I don't recall mom fixing it while we were growing up, but I do remember Amy & I having Shake 'n Bake chicken at our babysitter's house one night. I decided to go with the Shake 'n Bake chicken for tonight's dinner, doing chicken nuggets instead of breast fillets. They are so easy to fix & there's no mess to clean up. I'm already thinking of trying a buffalo-seasoned version - it would be the perfect party appetizer served with a side of ranch dip.

Chicken Nuggets
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast cut into 1-1/2 to 2-inch pieces
1 Packet Shake -N- Bake Original Chicken Mix

Dump seasoning packet into a large Ziploc bag. Moisten chicken pieces with water. Put all chicken into seasoning bag, tossing until well-coated. Place chicken pieces on 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
