Homemade chicken nuggets are better than any store-bought version could ever be. With the simple special sauce, these appetizers work well for special occasions and every day.


  • 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cubed
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • SAUCE:
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar


  1. In a bowl or plastic bag, combine bread crumbs and lemon-pepper seasoning. Add chicken pieces, a few at a time, and toss to coat.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir chicken for about 5 minutes or until juices run clear. In a small saucepan, combine sauce ingredients; stir until heated through. Serve with chicken.
