Ah, chicken nuggets. Undoubtedly one of the most delicious and favourite foods of our childhood.
Birthday parties, after school snacks or a regular on the dinner rotation, lord knows what was actually
in those questionably shaped pieces. We certainly have missed the novelty, but not the heavy deep fried
business that comes with it. There’s sadly some things we need to leave behind when we grow up, but
where there’s a healthy nourishing will, there’s a way – and this time it involves a little help of
almond meal! Talk about a seriously healthy after school snack for your little ones, or simply a quick
and easy dinner to whip up – we’ve healthified classic chicken nuggets (much better than the store
bought option) with a side of crunchy green chips!
