Veggie “Chicken” Nuggets

Nugget Time!

Sometimes, a girl just gotta have her “chicken” nuggets! These are a Wegman’s store brand product that does a tasty job of pretending to be batter-coated chicken nuggets. They were easy to prepare and even easier to eat: I placed them on an oil-sprayed cooking sheet in my toaster oven, preheated to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and baked for 15 minutes, turning once halfway through.  The flavor and texture were very good, and they went well with my favorite sweet-n-sour sauce! So, how’s the nutrition content in these little gems? Here is the rundown for one serving size (7 pieces):

Carbohydrates: 12 grams
Cholesterol: 0 mg
Calories: 140
Protein: 12 grams
Iron: 10%
Fat: 5 grams

These make an excellent kid’s meal: Just add a side of french fries and a vegan fruit smoothie and voila, a children’s meal better than any fast food place could make!
