How To Make Chicken Nuggets
Place the chicken in a large plastic food storage bag. Coat the chicken evenly with the buttermilk and place this bag on a plate. In a small bowl, combine the melted vegetable shortening, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper. Sprinkle this over the chicken.
Transfer each piece of chicken to the flour mixture, coating the chicken well on one side. Dip each piece of chicken in the bowl of buttermilk, coating both sides, then dredge in the panko crumbs and place on a separate plate. Arrange the breaded chicken strips about an inch apart on a couple of non-stick cookie sheets that will fit in your oven. Carefully place the sheets in the center of the oven.
