The recipe, Golden Nuggets, had a few things going for it right off the bat. The chicken is first marinated in a flavorful mixture of buttermilk, lemon juice, and spicy seasonings. What sets these apart from plain old chicken nuggets is the coating. Instead of regular breadcrumbs, Whole Wheat English Muffins are placed in a food processor and processed until they turn into smallish bits. Fresh grated parmesan cheese is then mixed in and then this is used to coat the sliced chicken pieces. After being baked, the chicken was juicy and the crust turned into a crisp golden brown coating. Next time I have a hankering for chicken strips, I know what recipe I can turn to!
To go along with these, I cut some potatoes into about 1/8" thick slices and then soaked them in some cold salted water for awhile. I then tossed them with some extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Next, we baked them at a high temperature until the insides were tender and the outside just started to get crispy.
