Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 35 minutes

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  3. Whisk together flour, salt, and pepper in a bowl. In a separate bowl, add the two whisked eggs.

  4. In a third bowl, add the crushed pretzels. This will be the assembly line for the nuggets.

  5. Take a piece of chicken and dip it in the flour mixture until it is evenly covered.

  6. Dip it in the eggs, and then in the crushed pretzels, then place it on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining chicken.

  7. Bake nuggets for about 20 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
