baked chicken nuggets... 30 minutes

the goods:

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 cup panko
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread panko on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a shallow dish, then add Parmesan and 1/2 teaspoon salt; drizzle with oil and stir to combine. Place flour and eggs in separate shallow dishes. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees.
Set a wire rack in a rimmed baking sheet; lightly coat rack with cooking spray. In batches, coat chicken in flour, shaking off excess, dip in egg, then coat with panko, pressing to adhere. Place on rack. Bake until chicken is cooked through, 12 minutes, flipping halfway through.
