As we get ready for another season of football to get underway, it’s the perfect time to post a great snack to enjoy on gameday.  These Chicken Nuggets are simple to prepare and are a much healthier alternative to the ones you would pick up from a fast food joint or the freezer section at the market.  They taste fresh, moist, and have that crunchy coating that everyone loves.  In less than 30 minutes, you can have a plate full of these delicious bites that won’t last long!  You can get creative with them too like adding a little cayenne pepper to the breading.  Sometimes we like to eat them buffalo style with ranch and celery on the side 🙂
