These are amazing, and actually pretty dang easy to make like the title says. I recently got a cookbook with one of my review packs called Weelicious Lunches and I just had to try these.

Make with Organic Chicken and not cheat like I did and make your own mashed potatoes and you will 100% know what is in your nuggets. My cheat was to buy some Simply Potatoes because they were BOGO lol.

  3. In a shallow bowl or plate, combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan.

  5. Gently press the nugget into the bread crumb mixture to coat.

  7. Lightly spray nuggets with cooking spray.
  8. Bake for 20 mins, or until crispy outside and cooked throughout.

  1. After step 5, place the chicken nuggets on a sheet tray and freeze for 30 minutes. Transfer to a ziplock bag, label, and freeze for up to 4 months. To bake, do not defrost; just add 3 - 5 minutes to the baking time.
