Hope this post finds you all safe and happy in the cozy confines of your own home. I am sure that it can be frustrating at times to be cooped up but just think about it for a second. It is the middle of a pandemic and many of us are comfortable at home with access to food, television, wifi and so many other things. A good time to reflect and count our blessings!

The children are definitely getting a bit cranky so I am trying to keep them busy doing some activity or the other throughout the day. They just love eating chicken nuggets as well as helping me make them. So all in all a great activity for the kids.

I prefer baking instead of frying them since we make it quite often. Another option is to pan fry it with just a teaspoon of oil in a hot pan till brown and crispy on both sides. You can even use an air fryer in case you have one at home. All of these methods turn out really well.

I use homemade breadcrumbs because it is a great way to use up stale bread. Just toast any old bread and blitz it up into crumbs. You can also use store bought or even panic breadcrumbs which also turn out amazing! Mixing the breadcrumbs with just a little bit of parmesan totally makes this dish sensational by creating a crisp golden outer layer.

With homemade chicken nuggets, you know exactly what goes into them and can be happy feeding them to your kids whenever they want!
