How to cook our chicken nuggets

Serves 4-6 | 1 Hour
This is less of a recipe and more of an alert to the fact we sell Milawa Poultry organic chicken nuggets – crispy, crunchy, delicious and a hit with kids, big and small. We've served ours to young Louis (Cousin Pat's mini) with steamed veggies and roasted sweet potato chips. This is great for preppers – one pack will do four to six dinners, depending on the appetite of your little one.
 

Ingredients:

From Hagen's:

500g chicken nuggets

 

From the pantry or Hagen's veggie box:

1 head of broccoli
2 carrots
1 sweet potato

Suggested condiments to serve:

Mayonnaise
Tracklement Tomato Chutney
Tracklement Smooth Dijon Mustard

 

Method:

1. First, let’s start with the potato chips, they will take the longest. Preheat the oven to 180c. Peel your sweet potato and cut in 1cm thick chips, you may need to cut these in half depending on the size of your potato. Pop onto a lined baking tray and toss with olive oil, pepper, salt (depending on the age of your little ones), and you can add spices like cumin if you choose. Now you’re ready to go into the oven for 45 minutes, turning the chips halfway through.

2. Put a pot on the stove, over a medium-high heat, with a fitted steamer with around 2cm of water in the pot. Peel your carrots and cut in half before slicing in to match-sticks around 5mm. Cut your broccoli into florets. Put the carrots and broccoli into the steamer for 10 minutes. The vegetables should be well done and safe for kids. Please make sure to test the vegetable before serving. You may need to cut the florets in half or quarters if they are too big. Toss the steamed veggies with butter and season.

3. For the nuggets, put the pan on a medium heat on the stove and put enough oil in the pan to cover the bottom. When the oil is nice and hot, pop the nuggets in with enough room so they are not touching one another. You might need to do 2-3 batches. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side before transferring to a lined baking tray and cooking for 5-10 minutes at 180c.

4. Serve up your nuggets and veggies and use your child’s favourite condiments, who doesn’t love to dunk a nugget? We’ve gone with mayo for our little taste tester.

There's something particularly meditative about sitting down and folding dumplings, which is exactly the type of past time that we're all currently looking for. The filling for these potstickers is very simple, including pork, cabbage and garlic chives. Getting the folding right can take some practise, but if you're struggling, just folding them into half moons will work well too!
