My tender, juicy, Chicken Breast Nuggets are baked to a golden perfection. A healthful alternative to any fast-food restaurant and an excellent lunch box option for your children.My kids are all in college now, but it seems to me that kids go back to school way to early. When I was growing up we returned to school after Labor day.  Back in the day, I was a picky eater.  My mom was forced to feed me salami and mustard sandwiches 4 days a week and one day I would take a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to school.

My tender, juicy, Chicken Breast Nuggets are baked to a golden perfection. A healthful alternative to any fast-food restaurant and an excellent lunch box option for your children.My kids weren’t as picky, and I wasn’t much better at coming up with great healthful alternatives for them either.  But you are all in luck.  Today for Sunday Supper we are sharing back to school recipes with all of you.

My tender, juicy, Chicken Breast Nuggets are baked to a golden perfection. A healthful alternative to any fast-food restaurant and an excellent lunch box option for your children.The good news is these chicken nuggets that I made are now enjoyed by my whole family, even if we aren’t taking them in our lunch bags.  They are grain-free and fit perfectly into any meal plan.

I love the creative new lunch boxes the kids have these days.  Bento box styles, insulated styles, they are all so great.  A whole lot better that the tin cartoon character boxes of days gone by.

Check out all these other back to school recipe ideas.  Thanks to  of  Mamas meals for hosting today’s Sunday Supper Event.

  11. I’m so excited to try these healthy chicken nuggets! They look delicious – so packed with flavorful spices. The honey mustard dipping sauce is such a great idea – my family will love this! PS – I bet the salami sandwiches with mustard were delish!

    • Thank you Lisa. These nuggets were so good that I just might have to pack them in my lunch to take to work. PS. I haven’t had a salami and mustard sandwich in years. But those were the days.

  12. Yes! I love using almond meal for chicken tenders; we do this often in our home. I usually make them with unsweetened coconut shreds. I can’t wait to try your version!
