My little fella likes his food but finds whole pieces of meat difficult to eat. Also on those busy work days trying to get something on the table quickly can be a mission. So having something healthy in the freezer as a standby is a must.
Homemade chicken nuggets
500g Chicken mince
pinch of salt
1 cup of breadcrumbs
1 apple, grated
In a bowl mix together the chicken mince, egg, grated apple, salt and 1/2 C of the breadcrumbs until it makes a thick paste.
My little helper
You really could add anything else you wanted here - grated or finely chopped veges, herbs or cheese.
Form into nuggets, rounds or fingers and coat in the remaining breadcrumbs.
Lay in a baking dish with a little oil and bake in the oven at 200 degrees C for about 20mins until cooked and golden.
All done, yummy, nutritious chicken nuggets without the extra fat, preservatives or additives.
These went down a treat with the little fella especially with a little tomato sauce for dipping. A few cooked veges and some fruit on the side and dinner was complete.
All the extras are going into the freezer for easy future meals. So here's to a brighter easier week!
Take care everyone.
