Perfect Recipe for Toddler Chicken Nuggets

These chicken nuggets are a classic kids' dish that are created to be easy to eat for toddlers!

I'm sure we've all prepared chicken nuggets with bite-size chunks of chicken wrapped in breadcrumbs and baked. We eat them frequently and enjoy them! However, we began to consider how difficult that would be for toddlers and younger children to chew. Meat might be especially rough for toddlers who don't have all of their teeth. Beyond the salt, fat, and chemicals, one of the reasons processed nuggets are so popular among young children is that they are simpler to consume. So, for a novel meal idea, I decided to prepare ‘Unprocessed' nuggets, which turned out to be wonderful!!

What Is the Best Way to Make Homemade Chicken Nuggets?

Chicken nuggets are a regular fixture in many children's diets. They're easy to get by at fast food restaurants and in the freezer area of the supermarket. Even though kids adore chicken nuggets from any source, the best chicken nuggets are cooked from scratch. You won't have to question what kind of meat is ground up and put in your nuggets because they're fresh and delicious.

Cutting up bite-size pieces of chicken breast, coating them in a flour combination, egg mixture, and then a breadcrumb mixture is the traditional method for making homemade chicken nuggets. After that, you can bake, deep fry, pan fry, or even air fry your nuggets! This method for making chicken nuggets is quick and straightforward, and the results are tasty. But don't worry, we've got a kid-friendly solution for you!

How to Make the Best Toddler Chicken Nuggets

Begin with the chicken breasts. To keep the chicken moist, I decided to boil it. TIP: If your chicken breasts are overcooked, your nuggets will be overcooked as well. Don't overcook your food! Then, in a blender, combine your cooked chicken with:

  • 1 egg

  • salt, to taste

Blend everything together until it's smooth.

You may shape these chicken nuggets to make them more enjoyable because the chicken is soft and moldable after blending. Many businesses sell dinosaur nuggets, so if you have a dinosaur mold to to use, it will be supper fun. You can, however, try any shape. Pack tiny balls of the meat mixture into cookie cutters and roll them in bread crumbs if you wish to make shapes. It doesn't take long, and kids appreciate it when their meal is served in an interesting way. They may assist with this step as well - just make sure they thoroughly wash their hands afterwards!

Place your nuggets on a baking sheet to bake once they're done. We brushed them with a little butter to make them crispier, but this is completely optional! Then bake for about 10 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit (you can turn halfway through if you want both sides crispy). Serve with a dipping sauce of your choice, such as honey mustard, ranch, BBQ sauce, or whatever. Enjoy!
