Veggie chicken nuggets:

  • 1 cup cooked broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 cup uncooked carrot, chopped
  • 1 lb ground chicken (or use turkey if you prefer)
  • 1 egg
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the broccoli, carrot, chicken, egg and spices and mix together to fully combine
  3. Mix together the breading ingredients in a small bowl
  4. Using clean hands, scoop about 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken nugget mixture into your hands and form into an egg shape then dip in breading to evenly coat and add to baking sheet
  5. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes then serve with your favorite dipping sauce! I love using mustard, buffalo sauce and ketchup!
