Slow Cooker Chicken Nuggets

  • Cooking Time:

    2–4 hours
  • Servings:



4 to 6 chick­en, breasts, bone­less, skin­less, halved
4 T. But­ter, or olive oil (I liked using but­ter)
4 eggs
1 c. bread­crumbs, or a mix­ture of crack­er, cere­al, tor­tilla chip, etc. crumbs.
1/2 tsp. sea­soned salt
1/2 tsp. gar­lic pow­der
1 T. flax seed meal (option­al)

Slow Cook­er Chick­en Nuggets will have all the kid­dos excit­ed for din­ner or lunch, and a great meal to make ahead of time too!

  1. Cut thawed chick­en into child-size pieces.
  2. Spray the slow cook­er with cook­ing spray.
  3. A tip from the recipe is to make sure the pieces are only about 2 inch­es. This size nugget cooks bet­ter and the kids like this size.
  4. Mix the but­ter or oil with the egg in a sep­a­rate bowl.
  5. Com­bine the crack­er and cere­al crumbs to make a fine bread crumb mix­ture and pour into a pie plate.
  6. Dip the chick­en piece in the egg mix­ture, and toss them in the crumbs. (I use a bag­gie with the crumbs and shake to toss.
  7. Spray the slow cook­er with cook­ing spray.
  8. Lay­er the bat­tered chick­en pieces in the bot­tom of the crock.
  9. Once the bot­tom is full, add a piece of alu­minum foil, pok­ing sev­er­al tiny holes in the foil to allow steam to escape. (Make sure you poke lots of holes as it is impor­tant for the chick­en to get done!)
  10. Depend­ing on the size of your slow cook­er you could have as many as 4–6 lay­ers of nuggets.
  11. Cov­er. Cook on High for 2–4 hours. Vent the lid with a wood­en spoon, or rolled up foil.

After cook­ing, leave your slow cook­er on warm for a few hours before serv­ing.

NOTE: When cooled, and if there is any left put in freez­er bags to pull out for meals down the road.

Instead of alu­minum foil can I use parch­ment or wax paper to seper­ate lay­ers?


What kind of cere­al?
