Parmesan Chicken Nuggets for Picky Eaters, and Everyone Else Too

Second in the "Picky Eater Series" is this yummy chicken nugget recipe, Caleb really chowed on these and asked for more. Can't beat that. By the way, we all liked these, they were tender and very flavorful, more chicken than breading, definitely not the freezer or fast food variety.
Auntie Leah made these with little Mr. Caleb and I took photos, enjoy!
Chicken Nuggets
2 pounds chicken tenders
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated finely
1/2 cup fine bread crumbs ( THM use Joseph's Pita, toasted and crushed)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup milk
First, always wash your hands.
Next, trim the chicken and cut into nugget size  pieces. Kitchen scissors made this easy, wash before and after.
Here's the gross picture...
Pour milk into a shallow bowl.
Mix all the dry ingredients together, like this...

Grease a sheet pan and a cooling rack, place rack on top of pan. Set aside. Preheat oven to 400F.
Set up an assembly line of milk, crumb mixture then pan.
Dip each piece of chicken into the milk,
then into the crumbs,
 and place on the rack.
Bake about 20 minutes or until no longer pink.

Most of us here like to dip them into ranch dressing, , but there are always those who don't like anything...except these chicken nuggets, try them soon.
