You know when you buy a bag of your favorite snack and you eat it all up but are left with the crumbs at the bottom of the bag? THAT! I hate that! Maybe it’s the fact that I’m Mexican or that I was a single mom for many years, but I don’t like to waste food. My son loves Goldfish. These Goldfish Chicken Nuggets combine his two favorite things in the world. Plus, they’re delicious!
Goldfish crackers are an easy snack. Just grab and go. They even have the mini to-go containers which I love. The best bang for your buck is the gigantic, monster-size package. I bought a small bag because I find myself snacking on them too. GUILTY!
For me, the Goldfish Chicken Nuggets come out with just the right amount of salt, but to each their own. So, I don’t add it when I’m prepping the chicken. If you want to add salt, go for it.
Sure you can use a food processor, but you can get the kids involved. They love crushing Goldfish! Anything to make a mess in the kitchen. If only they would helping cleaning… hmmph! They could ride a Roomba wearing a shark outfit, but then again, I’m told that only applies to cats. 😛
Since the chicken is small, the cooking is super fast! Remember to wash your hands after handling chicken. Oh, and the surface too. Don’t want ugly germs with little ones running around.
The green onion, in my humble onion, goes a long way. that’s why I add it. Again, if you don’t like it, or maybe your child won’t eat it, then omit. Now all you need is your favorite dipping sauce, and you have an appetizer, afternoon school snack, or dinner that you and your kiddos will love.
