Baked Buttermilk Chicken Nuggets

1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
2 cups buttermilk
3/4 cup dried bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dried Italian herb blend
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 eggs

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Place chicken and buttermilk in a large mixing bowl; toss to combine. Marinate 15 minutes.

Combine bread crumbs, cheese, herb blend, pepper flakes, salt and black pepper on a plate. Beat eggs in a small bowl. Drain chicken nuggets. Roll pieces in egg; coat with breadcrumbs, shaking off excess. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake until coating is golden brown and chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes.

Makes 4 servings

Serve these nuggets with a bottled ranch dressing, or a honey-Dijon would also work.
