Chicken nuggets are a childhood favorite. They’re fun to eat with your fingers and to dip in your favorite sauce. We recommend a yogurt-based dip like our Herbed Blue Cheese Dip for a well-balanced condiment that goes perfectly with chicken nuggets and a plate of fresh veggies.


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cubed
  • ½ cup quick oats
  • ½ cup wheat germ
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ tsp. thyme
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. basil
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil


  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.  Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the water. Add the chicken.
  3. Pulse oats and wheat germ together in a food processor until there are no whole pieces of oats left.
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together oat mixture, seasonings, and oil, being sure to evenly distribute oil.
  5. Toss chicken with herb mixture and place on the prepared baking sheet and bake, turning once, until one of the larger pieces is white in the center when cut open (15-20 minutes).
