My Baked Chicken Nuggets

Three more days until the GRE. As much as I’m freaking out right now, these chicken nuggets are as tasty. Eeeeeeeeeeeks. Tell me why I’m still blogging.

  • 1/8 t. cayenne pepper powder

  1. Soak the cubes of chicken in milk for ~24 hours
    or just throw them in a slightly whisked egg white for a second.
  2. Preheat oven to 425F.
  3. Mix the remaining 10 ingredients in a small bowl, this will be the “breading.”
