Chicken Nuggets and Sweet Potato Fries

I had intended to get this out in time for the Super Bowl, but a blizzard in our area left me with a lot of snow to deal with and little energy for much else. However they were so good I could not let the recipe go to waste, especially when my toddler was in love with them.
Chicken Nuggets
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
2 eggs beaten
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1. Cut chicken breast into one inch strips and set aside.
2. Combine bread crumbs, onion powder, paprika, thyme, and black pepper in a medium bowl. Place two eggs in a small bowl and beat till well blended.
3. Take the chicken and dredge in the eggs and then roll in the bread crumb mixture and place in an oven at 400º F. Back for 5 minutes then turn the pieces over and bake for another 5 minutes or until cooked through.

Sweet Potato Fries
2 sweet potatoes
olive oil

Peel the sweet potatoes and slice them like steak fries, this will help preventing them from burning and to help get a crunchy crust. Place the strips on a baking pan and bake them in the oven at 450º for 20 minutes being sure to turn them about half way through. Be sure to let them cool for 5-6 minutes before serving.
