Home-made Chicken Nuggets

With the kids home this summer, more meals are being consumed at home.  I wanted to have some good and easy meals on hand for quick lunches.  These home-made chicken (I used Organic Ground Turkey from Costco) nuggets are packed with flavor and I know what is in them.  I hope you enjoy them too!
 My recipe makes enough for about 40 nuggets.  Just pop them in the freezer in a single layer on parchment.  Once frozen, you can place them in a freezer bag or container for another day.
Home-made Chicken Nuggets
2 lbs. ground turkey
1/2 c .old fashioned oats
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. Smoked Paprika (Penzy's)
1 tsp. Tastefully Simple Italian Garlic Seasoning
1/2 tsp. Ground black pepper
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. Smoked Paprika
1 tsp. Kosher salt
1 1/2 c. panko 

Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix breading ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
In a large bowl combine the ground chicken or turkey with the oats, Parmesan and seasonings.  Take 1 tablespoon of meat mixture and flatten to a nugget shape and press into the breading mixture and place on parchment.  Place in freezer until firm and transfer to freezer safe container or bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes, flipping half way through.  If baking from frozen, they will take around 30 minutes.
Serve with your favorite dipper...mine is Tastefully Simple Garlic Parmesan Wing Sauce!
