Baked Chicken Dippers

Megan Ostler, Michelle Alley

TOTAL TIME:40 min

Our coworkers challenged us to create a baked chicken nugget that was comparable to their favorite restaurant’s grilled chicken nuggets—and I think we nailed it! The secret trick? We used pickle juice to help tenderize and give the chicken just a bit of zing, without leaving too much of a pickle taste. This is the perfect recipe to serve a crowd at any party as it’s quick and easy, and it makes even the pickiest eaters happy!

          Directions
          1. In a medium bowl, mix together pickle juice and milk. Add the chicken, then cover and allow to marinate for 20 minutes.
          2. While the chicken is marinating, mix together powdered sugar and all of the seasonings (garlic powder, onion powder, celery salt, smoked paprika, black pepper) and set aside.
          3. Once chicken has marinated for 20 minutes, prepare a baking pan and preheat the oven to 400°F.
          4. Drain the chicken and toss with the seasoning mixture, space chicken out on the greased baking pan, making sure none of the pieces are touching.
          5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is white throughout.
          6. Remove from oven and enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce.
