I pinned these chicken nuggets on Pinterest a long time ago and kept meaning to make them for my kiddos. I'm not sure what took me so long...but I'm really glad I finally made them. And my kids are really glad I finally made them.
They have definitely been quite a hit in our house. My kids love chicken nuggets but we rarely have them since they contain so much processed foods.
I love that I know exactly what is in these chicken nuggets.
They were really easy to make; there were just a few steps involved (boiling chicken, grinding the cooked chicken, forming shapes, baking). An older kid could definitely help out after the boiling and grinding stages.
I used two pounds of chicken, which made quite a bit. I froze most of them and they seem to reheat without any problem!
Here's what they looked like prior to baking.
I used some of my heart and flower shaped cookie cutters to make cute little shapes.
And I did drizzle a little bit of butter over the top to help them brown.
Yum! They are a hit in our house!!
