I am guilty of feeding LittleMan V fast food and store bought chicken nuggets. He absolutely likes them and if given a chance to eat nuggets everyday he would.
I have tried several recipes for a healthy chicken nuggets and V would either complain that it was not soft (not like the ones from McDo) or just didn’t taste good enough for him. It has been more than a month or two since I stopped buying frozen store bought nuggets and how he miss having them for breakfast or snack.
Last week I prepared healthy chicken nuggets for his after school snack and he easily ate 8 pieces in one sitting and LittleMiss enjoyed them as well!
While planning for his school lunch, he once again requested that I prepare Mama’s healthy chicken nuggets.
Healthy Chicken Nuggets
1 lb cubed Chicken Breasts ( or Minced Chicken)
1 small Onion
2 medium Carrots
1 cup mashed Potato
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs
Preheat oven to 130C.
In a food processor blitz chicken breasts, onion, carrots, mashed potato, garlic, salt and pepper.
Scoop 1 tbsp of the mixture and shape them in squares roll in bread crumbs.
Bake for 25 minutes. Cool on rack and freeze.
* If you don’t have a food processor you can use minced chicken, grate carrots and onion then mix all the other ingredients using a spoon.
My son used to love McDo chicken nuggets…now he’s into KFC chicken popcorn which I try to limit once a week lol….thank you for sharing the recipe – love the plug in – I like to sneak in grated carrots to almost every child-friendly recipe
The recipe will be easy to turn into chicken popcorn 🙂 half bake then deep fry.
