When you try these little gems, you will never buy shop nuggets again!



Everyone knows that the chicken nuggets we buy from the shop have about 60% chicken in them; some even less at 35% chicken. It just makes you wonder about all the other ingredients and preservatives that they are packed with. We know they are unhealthy and full of salt, but we persist in buying them because the kids love them so much. I mean, who could resist the crunchy, salt-coated batter and the ‘chicken’ that is so tender and yummy? They tick all the boxes: the kids love them, they are super-convenient and they are ridiculously easy to prepare. But they are also not the healthiest food in the world…

You won’t believe how easy it is to make healthy, homemade nuggets until you actually make this recipe yourself. What’s good about this recipe is that you can make a big batch, cook them and freeze them, then reheat them whenever you want. With all natural ingredients and 100% chicken breast, you won’t be able to resist the taste of true homemade nuggets. I can also bet you that your kids will never want to go back to box nuggets again.

Serve as dinner, lunch or snack with your favorite sauce or mayonnaise. Trust me, you won't feel bad about feeding the kids these little gems.
