Like most human beings I love chicken nuggets! Normally I’ll buy the bag of frozen kind in the store and eat them for a late night snack. I especially ate them alot when I was preg because I didn’t feel like cooking as much. 

Unfortunately my health conscious husband hatesss when I eat the frozen nuggets so I’m like fine I’ll  make my own! Of course these will taste better if you fry them in grease but I am getting older and need to eat better. So I resulted to baking them, ‘oh joy’ lol. 

If you want to be a super parent, you can even add some blended zucchini or cauliflower to the mix so they can get some veggies in their meal. 😉


If you have kiddos at home or lovvee nuggets, I suggest doubling up on the recipe so you can freeze the rest. The 2lbs of ground chicken makes 30-32 nuggets and I froze most of mine to eat later. 

  • After they are done cooking in the oven, let them cool on the counter for 15-30mins. 
  • Option 1: Lay them flat inside ziploc bags in one layer and seal tightly. Freeze over night. Next day add nuggets into one bag, reseal, and store in freezer. 
  • Option 2: Lay them flat on a baking sheet with wax paper and freeze over night. Next day add nuggets into a ziploc bag, seal tightly and store in freezer.
  • It’s important to freeze the nuggets in a single layer so they won’t stick together inside the bag. 
  • When you’re ready to eat the again, you can re-heat in the oven, microwave, or air fryer. (Just like you do normal frozen nuggets)
