Mealthy Tip

You don't have to stick to the carrots and broccoli used here. You can use any mildly-flavored vegetable, such as turnips, sweet potatoes or roasted squash in fall and winter. Bonus: the turnips' pale color easily blends into the chicken mixture!

These chicken veggie nuggets are the only way I can get my little guy to eat anything green! I'm so glad I found this recipe, he loves them.

I could not wait to try this recipe out on my little ones! It's so hard to get them to eat their vegetables, but they loved these so much they asked for seconds and thought of it as treat. Genius!

The only thing that would have possibly made this recipe taste better is maybe cheese? I thought it was really good. Also, I used regular flour instead of almond and oat flour.

Rachel Douglas says:

I have really picky eaters but they loved this recipe! My son is nut free so we skipped the almond flour, really didn't notice a difference in taste or texture (they were really good). Our food processor was perfect for chopping all the ingredients perfectly. Break out the ketchup because your kids will love this!

I made this with turnips, as suggested in the tip box. I like the crunchy texture of the breading, these are fun and healthy so it's a win win for families with little kids.
