When I plan my weekly menu I sometimes ask my boys for requests and these Chicken Nuggets are almost always called out. They absolutely love them. When I make these I have very happy boys at dinnertime! I have a hard time serving my family the commercially prepared, pressed meat and deep fried variety, so I was happy when my sister Erin shared with me this much healthier recipe. The best part of preparing these chicken nuggets is that my boys LOVE to crush the crackers that are needed for the coating. I usually put the crackers in a sealed ziploc and let them pound their little fists on them like crazy. This is a very exciting night to help with dinner…so much better than setting the table or making a salad:) In the picture above, our crackers were not crushed very fine–like the recipe suggests. we must have been in a hurry that night:) Also, pictured next to the Chicken Nuggets are our favorite homemade fries. They are so good!! I will share the secrets to crispy and delicious baked french fries with you next!
