Chicken Strips For back to school

Whether a kid or an adult most of us enjoy chicken nuggets. It is hard to beat home made Chicken nuggets.

I have been told by a few that these are kid approved. Yes they are more work then store bought or fast food, but so much healthier. 

I decided to go with chicken nuggets for todays post because it back to school time. This year may look different then other years, but let’s make the most of it! I know I’m teaching online this year and with new to me companies(Outschool & VIPKids).

How is it different for you and your kiddos?

If you want to go all out grab some cookie cutters about the same size to turn your chicken in to dinosaurs or what ever you have. Butterfly the chicken so they are thin.

Then Cut out.

Then Dip and bake.

Watch to make sure they don’t get burnt since they are thin.
