When I was little and my Mother couldn't deal with making us dinner, we would head to McDonald's. I was never a burger girl. No, I loved chicken nuggets with all the sticky, sugary sauces. When I think about all the artificial fillers that go into them and how many boxes I ate over the years, it makes me want to gag. I still love chicken nuggets, and didn't want to deprive Kenya of the pleasure of them, but I wanted to make a healthier version that everyone in our family would love. I had a ton of fun testing this to find the perfect easy WeeNuggets recipe. I wanted them to have tons of flavor without being fried or packed with salt.
By buying organic, free range chicken (Rosie's is my favorite), you're making a gourmet nugget for the family. My husband doesn't eat chicken, but he's also my most honest tester. When I tell you he scarfed these up at dinner last night, I could only smile to myself in delight. Between him and Kenya, they disappeared immediately.
