We know kids love them, but did you know it is so easy to make a healthy version at home!
1 chicken breast (no skin, boiled or oven baked until cooked)
Bread crumbs, and/or cornflake crumbs (make your own by simply putting cornflakes in a food processor; you can also add oats, wheatgerm, sesame seeds or other small seeds)
*Optional: grated zucchini, squash or broccoli stem
Place the cooked, cooled chicken in a food processor or blender and pulse until chopped finely. Mix the egg and any optional ingredients thoroughly - the mixture should be sticky but not wet. Roll the mixture into desired nugget shape and size (if your feeling creative you can use a cookie cutter to make different shapes). Place crumbs in a shallow dish and roll the nuggets in the crumbs. Spray and oven tray lightly with oil and bake nuggets in an oven at 180 for about 7mins each side - time will depend on the size of your nuggets.
Using the cornflake crumbs gives the nuggets the "golden" colour without frying or using butter.
Uncooked nuggets can be frozen for several weeks
Thanks to Super healthy kids for the idea!
