Baked Chicken Nuggets

In my plight for boyfriend-friendly recipes, I came across one for baked chicken nuggets. The ingredients reminded me of chicken parm, which is one of his favorites, so I decided to pair these bites with marinara sauce and pasta.

This is my go-to recipe for making chicken parm! BF doesn’t mind the bites, vs. the large piece of chicken that traditionally comes with Chicken Parmesan. Maybe one day I’ll tackle a more traditional recipe, but for now, this works well!

These bites are best fresh out of the oven. They’re ok the next day, but they can get a little soggy. It’s best to heat them up using a toaster oven (or actual oven) if you have one, so they maintain crispiness.
