as new parents... we got into a HORRIBLE habit of grabbing chicken tenders 🐔 and letting the Gillies (now toddler twins) munch on the tenders while we shop.
this was to allow us to get our groceries and the necessities while having happy wee ones being toted around. #parentingsurvivalmode
well. the other day, I knew we were in trouble... when we pulled up to the grocery store and cheers for "CHICKEN" were exclaimed from the back seat! 🙈🙉🙊 YIKES!!!
nothing like toddlers to keep you HONEST and speak the truth!!!
so. we decided to make NEW traditions (and healthier habits)... we got chicken tenders to make AT HOME and they helped 😁 SCORE!!!
these chicken nuggets MAY look a wee bit different but they are loaded with goodness... free-roaming, antibiotic free, hormone free (all that jazz) ☺️ chicken tenders which are coated with freshly toasted and crushed almonds.
these homemade chicken nuggets were a HIT... plus, it's another recipe that this mama doesn't feel bad about serving (and took less than 20 minutes!)
did you know ALMONDS were good for BRAIN HEALTH!?!
cool factoids about almonds:
almonds are loaded with two key nutrients capable of positively affecting brain function and preventing cognitive decline
almonds are a great source of vitamin E and antioxidants which will nourish the skin and reduce signs of aging
almonds also help slow the rate at which glucose is released into the bloodstream
there's alot of other good nutritional tid bits about almonds... but we will leave it there for now!
hope you and your family love them as much as we did... I even used the leftovers for a delicious cobb salad the next day!
love + gumption.
