Skinny Chicken Nuggets, And MORE.

1) Just admit it. You like chicken nuggets.

You dooooo.

You like them because they’re bite-sized. You like the crunch it provides your mouth hole. You like the word NUGGET.


I like it too.

Well, guess what I’ve gone and diddly darn did done with ’em?

I allowed them their first cup of coffee. I let them wear makeup. I gave them the keys to my beamer. Okay, my Honda accord, shhhhhhh. 

THEY GREW UP! They’re healthy and baked and coated in gold flecks. Just kidding. They’re coated in cereal. But heart-healthy, fiberlicious, dude-I-just-grew-a-cape cereal.

You’ll dig ’em. And your kiddos will too.

Head riiiiight here for my step-by-step post on Tablespoon!

2) Do you know this girl? And the awesomeness that encompasses her? Well, you need to need to need to. Her name is Lisa and she’s (in the imaginary Wilson Phillips band with me) a gluten-free entertaining expert and she has some incredible news! So, I thought I’d spread the love here in case you or anyone you know are gluten-free and are looking to change a few things in your life.

Why can’t I get my hair to look like that?  You’ll love her.

3) I now have a feature on my site where you can subscribe via RSS or email! I GREW UP WITH MY CHICKEN NUGGETS, YOU GUYS.

Subscribe away, my pretties.

4) I still love Instagram. Come find me and let’s share pictures, m’kay? (@bevcooks)

5) And that’s all she wrote.

    Hi Bev! I just stumbled on to your blog, and I must say all of your recipes look mighty tasty! I also noticed that you're from Kansas City. My entire family lives in KC! My mom actually works for good JuJu down in the West Bottoms. If you ever need anything vintage (plates, dressers, glasses, jewelry) you should definitely stop by!

      Hey, Lauren! I've actually been to Good Ju Ju, and scored a BOMB Le Creuset for only $30! I love the place. Thanks so much for dropping by!

    I have a love/hate relationship with chicken nuggets... my kids LOVE them. I hate the idea of them. These, at least, I can handle. Thank you.

    I do like the word nugget... so much so that I might try making these this evening. :)
  19. Sally November 10, 2011 at 2:42 pm #
    Oh, these look so easy and perfect for tonight because I have a package of chicken breasts defrosting and can't think of a darned thing to do with them. The only problem is that the only cereal in my pantry is Captain Crunch :( Somehow don't think that translates. . .

    I like the word nuggets, but I've shortened it to NUGS, as in... "Can I have some chicken nuggets?" "I got your NUGS right here!" Or something like that. :) Thanks for the appetizing recipe!

    You totally just called me out. I am a dietitian, but I eat chicken nuggets every chance I get. Love them!!! I will have to try these!
