Chicken Broccoli Nuggets

Home/Lunch and Dinner, Lunchbox/Chicken Broccoli Nuggets

My kiddies love nuggets. I love that I can hide a range of goodies in them and they gobble them down. Now the broccoli isn’t entirely hidden. You can see green specks through the nugget but the kiddies didn’t even notice especially once dipped into sauce.

These are great to make in bulk and freeze either before or after the cooking process. It makes for a super quick meal. I even put these in the lunchbox much to  the kiddies delight.

Because of all the flavours in this, you can barely taste the broccoli.

    These were amazing. Don’t put a whole onion tho. A 1/4 onion would be the most as it becomes overbearing. Other than that, they were very tasty.

    Onion and garlic overpowered the taste and we didnt like the texture at all. Definately missing something taste wise.
