These easy baked chicken nuggets are cheesy, crispy and out-of-this-world delicious! My entire family practically inhaled them. This is a simple homemade chicken nugget recipe with a really fun twist. They are perfect as an after school snack, meal or even party food. Quick and easy to make with Cheez-its and ranch seasoning.
In a large bowl, mix together the buttermilk and entire packet of ranch seasoning mix.
Place the chicken in the bowl and coat well. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
Meanwhile, place the cheese crackers in a large Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin until you have crumbs. The smaller, the better!
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Completely coat each piece of chicken in the cheese cracker crumb mixture and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. *See notes
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
Serve with ranch dressing for dipping. Yum!
It's best NOT to place the chicken directly into the crumb mixture bag as the crumbs will eventually get soggy, making them difficult to stick to the chicken. Use your fingers to sort of pour the crumbs over each piece of chicken over the bag for best results.
