Anyone have a good recipe that you've tried?
My 3 year old LOVES dinosaurs, and I've been buying her the dinosaur shaped frozen chicken that say "all natural" but I think Incan make something a lot healthier myself. I have dinosaur cookie cutters to mould the shapes in, but I need a good HEALTHY recipe.
Basically any crusted baked chicken recipe can be used. You may have a tough time using the cookie cutters to cut the meat so maybe just normal shaped chicken nuggets. I know there are recipes for chicken breaded on corn flakes. I like chicken covered in crushed frenchfried onions.
It'd be hard to cut raw chicken with a cookie cutter, I think.
I just cut chicken breast up into nugget sized pieces, coat in shake n bake and bake.
My mom made homemade chicken nuggets once, they were good but I don't have the recipe to share. You can check these ones out
maybe use a food processor or ground chicken, and make kind of a meatloaf mix, then bake flat? you could use the cutter before you out it on his plate.
I've made these with success, even my husband liked them.
Check Pinterest for more though, I bet you'll have luck.
Thanks for te recipes!
And you don't cut the raw chicken with the cookie cutter lol, you use ground chicken or cook the chicken then cut it up really small and use some kind of binder like egg or whatever to stick it together.

Shake n bake is not healthy.
Oh I also wanted to ask, do you think they will freeze well if the chicken is pre cooked? So that I could have them pre made, and just put them in the oven for a few mins when I need them?
*batter or coating
All still healthier than frozen surely.
chicken chunks coated in a mix of crushed corn flakes, brown sugar and seasonings. bake at 375 for about 20 mins. great w/peanut sauce :)
I buy my Kids those Dino shaped ones too,but I would love to learn how to make my own,I was using google and found this recipie
I have not tried them,I don't own a food processor and I think You need one of those to make them,I would like to try them sometimes
