Ritz Parmesan Chicken Nuggets

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 ½ pounds chicken tenders (cut into 1 ½ inch pieces)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 cups Ritz cracker crumbs (I used a food processor to crush the crackers – if you don’t have one place them in a food grade plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin. They don’t have to be real fine)
  • ⅓ cup Panko bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Oil for deep frying.


In a large bowl mix together the butter milk, garlic, paprika, and salt; toss the chicken in the butter milk mixture, cover with plastic, and refrigerate for about 2 hours.
In a shallow dish like a pie plate whisk together the Ritz cracker crumbs, parmesan cheese and panko bread crumbs.
Preheat deep fryer to 350F.
Roll the chicken pieces one piece at a time in the crumb mixture and deep fry in batches until golden brown and crispy. Place on paper towels to drain any excess oil.
Serve as a stand-alone snack or with your favorite dipping sauce.
