  1. Does anyone know how to make these at home? I swear I keep Perdue in business with their Dinosaur Chicken nuggets!

    I use the Crunchy Whole-Grain Chicken Bites recipe from 29 Minutes Vol I - DS, who is 5 helps me make them, and we all love them at our house.
     
  3. Love it! I don't have the cook book so I'll have to try to get my hands on it!
     
  4. Oh yeah, we buy a lot of those! My kids will probably be eating those with mac-n-cheese for dinner tonight, because DH and I are having Jerk Chicken Nachos and my DD won't touch them, DS will sometimes, but not if you're counting on him eating them. Guess I'll have to try that recipe sometime too.

    for a real quick fix........cut chicken in small cubes, dip in ranch dressing and then crush corn flakes and roll the chicken in the corn flakes and bake on the large bar pan.

    Crunchy Whole-Grain Chicken Bites ---sounds YUMMY!
     
  10. I just finished a Kids in the Kitchen class tonight and we made these Chicken Nuggets. They were a HUGE hit! Quick, easy and delicious.
     
  11. That recipe sounds yummy. I will have to try it.

    At our house, we get the box of Zatarain's breading (Southern style is my kiddos fave). I cut the chicken up and roll it in this and fry it with some Smart Balance oil. It is all I can do to keep their little paws off of the plate before all of them are done. ;) They love them!
