The Healthy Mix Dinners Hidden Veg Chicken Nuggets

Sharing is caring!

Skinnymixer’s Hidden Veg Chicken Nuggets features in the Takeaway section of The Healthy Mix Dinners cookbook.

“Mum, we want nuggets and sweet n sour sauce!” Before you get takeaway – why not make these Hidden Veg Chicken Nuggets from scratch and hide some vegetables in them. P.S. This is the best gluten-free batter!

When I ask my kids what they want for takeaway, the answer is ALWAYS chicken nuggets and sweet and sour sauce… it almost feels like it’s a rite of passage for kids to go through the nuggets phase of childhood.

While getting take away is a great quick dinner option, two of the best things about the Hidden Veg Chicken Nuggets and Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce is how easy they are to prepare and how much healthier they are to make at home – you cannot go wrong with hidden veggies in nuggets!

How to Assemble Hidden Veg Chicken Nuggets

On top of being a delicious snack or meal, Chicken Nuggets and Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce are also versatile. You can serve them as finger food at a party, pack them in a lunchbox for school or work, or even serve them as a main course with a side salad or Mez’s Wedges.

Meal Prep for a Quick Dinner

Meal prep for a quick dinner option by keeping them unbattered nuggets in the freezer – the sweet and sour dipping sauce can also be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it.

So the next time the kids ask for nuggets and sweet and sour sauce, give these recipes a go and feel great about it too!
