16 frozen chicken nuggets (round or dinosaur shape)

1 cup marinara sauce (smooth) 

1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning 

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 

1/2 cup freshly shredded Parmesan 

4 slices provolone, cut into fourths 

Fresh basil, chiffonade, for garnish


  1. Bake the chicken nuggets according to the package instructions, ensuring that the chicken is cooked through and hot. Remove the pan and turn the oven to a medium broil setting.
  2. Top each chicken nugget with approximately a teaspoonful of marinara, a touch of Italian seasoning, a few red pepper flakes and a pinch of the Parmesan. Next, add a piece of the provolone to the top of each nugget. Place under the broiler until the provolone has melted and is beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a platter and top with the basil.
