TRIED ā€˜Nā€™ TRUE: Bake, kabob chicken nuggets for a healthy change

---- — I think we all love chicken nuggets. But to fry them is messy and isn’t real good for you.

I like this recipe because you can bake them or make kabobs. Add your veggies. They can be fried if you want.

The boys have this recipe and they use this on the grill all the time.

I never keep buttermilk on hand, but I do have the powdered buttermilk. Just add water. Works real well.
