Ritzy Chicken Nuggets

Before cooking...

...and after cooking.

This is a recipe from 'Feast' that I've wanted to try for a while, but in the book it says to fry the nuggets, which put me off a bit (not for health reasons - more because of mess and smell!)

But I've discovered you can cook them in the oven instead, so that's what I did. You soak cut-up chicken breast in buttermilk overnight, to make the meat tender, then dip them in crumbed Ritz (or similar) crackers, then cook them.

They really were very tender - no chewiness at all, and the outside was slightly crunchy, although not as strongly flavoured as I would have expected. Nice dipped in sauce though. Healthier than bought nuggets, and good for the kiddies!
