Healthy Chicken Nuggets

I’ve got a great recipe for kids (or kids at heart) today! Kids (and my husband) love chicken nuggets. I think it’s the bite sized aspect of them. They’re easy to handle, easy to dip, and delicious. Unfortunately, chicken nuggets are full of preservatives and sometimes aren’t even real chicken! I decided to come up with a healthy recipe that’s really easy to make!

These chicken nuggets are great! My husband said he could eat a hundred of them! If you wanna make it spicy, try adding 1-2 teaspoons (depending on how spicy you want it) or so of cayenne pepper to the flour mixture!
