Chicken nuggets are as American as apple pie and Chinese food. [I knew you wouldn’t believe me about Chinese food which is why I linked to a Ted Talk about that subject.]
Just like Chinese food and apple pie, you [and your kids] probably shouldn’t be eating chicken nuggets for every meal every day of the week.
But a few times a month when a busy day has kicked you in the butt or you’re in a hurry to get errands finished? I have done that more than once and I’ll keep doing it.
The new trend in food is to go “whole grain” and most food companies do a horrible job of it.
Perdue does a good job of adding some whole grain to a kid favorite without it tasting too cardboard like. You know what I’m talking about.
The kids ate them with no complaints and often asked for more. The nuggets can be prepared in the oven [about 11 minutes] or in the microwave [about 2 minutes] so I didn’t have to beat kids off of me while I was getting lunch together. Even my two impatient kids can wait two minutes.
My only complaint is that when they’re done in the microwave, they’re greasy feeling; in the oven they crisp up. Personal preference and you might not care or feel the same way about it.
