(and it gets you some extra fiber too)!
My kids are like any other kid on this planet…they’re picky eaters. Although, my son’s favorite food is calamari and he is ALWAYS asking to have it…go figure the kid likes the expensive appetizer! So unless it’s calamari or it comes in the shape of a nugget, they fight me on eating it. Until I decided to try something new.
A friend of mine told me to try breading my chicken with crushed Fiber One cereal. I was skeptical. Fiber One? The cereal that looks like rabbit pellets? But she assured me that it really was a great breading option for chicken. So I decided to give it a whirl. My son loves salad and was dying for me to buy the “red dressing” (Catalina) when we were at the grocery store so I got an idea. What if I dip the chicken in the Catalina dressing and then bread it with the
rabbit pellets Fiber One cereal?
So that’s exactly what I did. What happened that night at dinner was truly amazing. BOTH, yes I just said both, of my kids devoured their food. I didn’t have to threaten to take away their DSI or the computer. They ate their food. And let me tell you, it was good. It has not become one of our favorite ways to make chicken. It’s good baked in the oven, on the Foreman grill or on the BBQ.
What are your favorite, go-to chicken recipes? I’d love to add other non-nugget recipes to my arsenal of dinnertime recipes. Although, cutting your chicken into strips or nugget bites and breading it with the Fiber One is another good option and WAY better for you and your kids than store bought chicken nuggets. Plus you’re getting some much needed fiber!
So leave me a comment with your favorite way to make chicken! I’d love to give your recipe a try!
