Are you that chicken nugget lover? Do you have a child who wishes to subsist on nothing more than nuggets and fries? I can help you. There is hope. You don’t have to open that bag of frozen fare. These Italian Herb and Cheese Chicken Bites are a treat your entire family will love.
I like the word chicken bites versus chicken nuggets. I don’t know. There’s just something about the word nuggets that immediately puts something in that category of kid food. So, if you’re trying to get your kids to eat these, call them nuggets. If you’re putting them out with some marinara as an appetizer with cocktails, they are chicken bites. See what I did there?
In the amount of time it would take you to hit a drive through, you can have these on the table. Breading always feels a little tedious to me. I won’t lie. I’ve tried methods that cut a step out. I am sorry, it’s just not worth the sacrifice in quality. My advice is to put some music on and see it as one of those calming repetitive things. To my mom friends out there, just put on some soothing music and pretend you’re at the spa. It just might work.
Either way, whether you’re a mother who is ashamed of the number of times you cave to fast food requests, or you’re an adult that just can’t shake that craving, these Italian Herb and Cheese Chicken bites will redeem you. They are baked, protein packed, and truly delicious.
