Easy Kids Chicken Nuggets Recipe

My son loves chicken nuggets just like millions of other kids. I’m not a frozen foods shopper at the supermarket so I like to make easy kids food like this from scratch. I know, it’s not as easy as popping something in the microwave… If you’re like me, I hope you enjoy this easy kids chicken nuggets recipe! Serve it with your kids favorite dipping sauce but if they are like my son they don’t like any kind of sauce. Nope, my son doesn’t like any kind of sauce, not even ketchup or mayo. Enjoy the recipe below!
