It’s pretty hard to resist something called popcorn chicken. But when that something is also not too bad for you it’s kinda win, win. Harry and I love the Chicken and Broccoli Quinoa Nuggets so I thought it might be nice to try something different. These are so moreish, poor Harry had Nanny and I picking them off his plate like vultures.
With only 1 tablespoon of butter per 500g of chicken, and baked not fried, these are a must try. You can get the kids involved too, they will love shaking the chicken pieces in the bag. I often serve them take-away style with some homemade baked vegetable chips and salad.
