Are your kids super picky like mine? Lately, my kids have been little picky mcpicksters. One week they love macaroni and cheese, and one day they don’t. One week peanut butter and jelly is king and the next week, they hate it.
At least there is one food they all seem to agree on and it is chicken nuggets.
My kids LOVE crispy, oven-baked chicken nuggets. They especially love Dino Buddies dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets.
They love these nuggets because they are shaped like super cool dinosaurs. They also love how they bake up to a golden brown, crispy perfection in the oven.
Dino Buddies are available at pretty much all major grocers and can be located in the frozen chicken aisle.
I love buying this brand because they are not made with fillers and junk! Dino Buddies are made with skinless, boneless, white meat chicken that packs an Omega-3, and protein punch!

If this recipe doesn’t have everything my daughter loves all rolled into one yummy dish, then I don’t know what does. She is going to flip when I make this for her!
