Sesame Chicken Nuggets – OAMC

We have been trying out recipes for the last couple of weeks, and quite a few of them have made it into our regular rotation of meals. 

This past weekend, I had a freezer cooking day, and one of the dishes was a hit–Sesame Chicken Nuggets.  I got this recipe from my series of 30 Meals in One Day cookbooks, which is a great freezer cooking resource.

Sesame Chicken Nuggets

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs (I simply toasted three pieces of bread and then ground them down in a food processor to make the crumbs)
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. ground mustard
1 tsp. minced dry onion
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed

In a bowl, combine dry bread crumbs and sesame seeds

In a separate bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard and onion.

Coat chicken with mayonnaise mixture and then roll in bread crumb mixture.  Place on a greased, foil lined baking sheet.

Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. 

Allow to cool completely.  Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze.  Transfer to a freezer bag.

To reheat, microwave, or, for crispier chicken, reheat in a toaster oven.



  1. I love the great sound of this recipe the sesame seed part is new to me with chicken nuggets but I think it updates them thanks for sharing come see what I shared at

  2. I *love* this idea! I’m working on trying to keep our meals down to $3.50/dinner (not per serving), and this fits the bill, when I’m able to find boneless chicken breasts for $1.70/pound. I would make these, then only use 1 pound at a time, add rice or potato, and a salad (we eat every night), and we’re raring to go!
