Mealthy Tip

Serve with your favorite dipping sauces! Need some ideas? How about mixing sriracha and mayonnaise (or Greek yogurt) for a spicy kick. Tzatziki sauce is a nice and cool dipper. Mix honey and mustard together for a honey mustard dip. The options are endless.

My kids devoured this! I'm not a huge fan of using salt so I skipped the seasoned salt. I also made a ketchup and mayo sauce mix for dipping. The parmesan cheese added was the perfect secret ingredient, but you can omit it or use a vegan cheese substitute if you're dairy free.

I like the mix of plain and Panko bread crumbs. I've tried making nuggets before with just Panko and I didn't like it as much. This is a great recipe, especially for small kids and picky eaters. Dipping sauce optional, my kids didn't even ask for any which is a good sign.

love these lil nuggets!I like to omit the Parmesan cheese from the recipe and add garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, chili powder and white pepper to my breadcrumb mix. You could always use seasoned breadcrumbs to make life easier. I have also used plain bread crumbs and added ranch salad dressing mix to my breadcrumbs for cool ranch nuggets.
