Chicken Nugget Surprise
Today whilst doing my grocery shopping my eyes were drawn to [1/2 price chicken goujons] down to $8 for this large pack of Crumbed Chicken Breast Bites.. I stopped my trolley , I stared at the fridge ( I haven’t bought these things for years) I stepped over to the fridge door , tentatively looking at the door… They were after all “Made from Chicken Breast” ” No artificial colors and flavors” ” School Canteen Approved”
I’d had such a busy week… I was tired , feeling under the weather.. these would be great for the kids – quick dinner…all these thoughts milling in my head as I opened the door and put my hand out and grabbed a pack.
Turned them over and took one look at a list longer than my shopping list with numbers and various other things and quickly threw the pack back in and shut the door shaking my head !
So this afternoon I took one chicken breast , a few other ingredients and made these beauties !
Kids demolished them and they took all of 10 minutes to prepare 🙂
