Back in the kitchen!
It's so darn hot and humid here that I've really been avoiding my kitchen (how I love the grill and crockpot) and feeling sad about not cooking, so I sucked it up and went for it today!
I had some leftover roasted chicken from our "Christmas in July" dinner on Saturday so I decided to make some chicken nuggets.
Here's what you'll need:
~1 c cooked chicken - roasted, grilled, boiled, in the crockpot - whatever you prefer!
~1/4 c spinach (I used frozen)
~1/8 c bread crumbs (plus about 1/8 c more for rolling nuggets)
2 handfuls of mozzarella cheese
Combine all ingredients in a food processor until they hold together and can be rolled into balls. Add more breadcrumbs if needed. If mixture dries out, add a teeny bit of olive oil. Form into balls and coat in bread crumbs. Flatten slightly to form "nuggets" and baked on an olive oil-coated cookie sheet at 375 for 15 min, turning once half-way through.
Jude isn't big chicken fan and refuses to eat spinach, but he's mmmmm-ing away as I type this. They're a hit! They are pretty similar to my broccoli bites but something new to try. Experiment with some other veggies and cheeses, too!
Stay cool, everybody!
