#ad Cheesy Chicken Nugget Kabobs #LoveUrNuggets

Collective Bias Disclosure

Chicken nuggets are a huge staple in my kids’ menu selections.  I mean, they are 6 and 3 so chicken nuggets are their idea of “gourmet” food anyways.  I don’t really mind because they are super easy and fast to prepare which makes meals on busy weeknights {or these days…busy weekends} so much easier.
I am always looking for ways to bring in new flavors or take their dinner beyond just a plate of nuggets to make dinner a little more interesting for them.  Recently, Tyson introduced Cheesy Chicken Nuggets and I knew we had to try them.  Combining cheese with a chicken nugget is like the ultimate thing for them.  It would be like making a chicken nugget pizza…hmmm, there is an idea they would love too!  In an effort to make these new chicken nuggets even more fun, I used them to create some cheesy chicken nugget kabobs.

I found these nuggets during a recent trip to Walmart to pick up a few things that someone had posted on Instagram that caught my eye.  Our Walmart sometimes get food products before some of the local grocery stores so I always like to stroll through and see what catches my eye.
The chicken nuggets were in the freezer section along with the other newest flavor: spicy nuggets.  I got home right before lunchtime so decided to try them out on my littles for the upcoming lunch.  While the nuggets taste great in the microwave, I always prefer to bake them in the oven.

Just for fun, once they were done, I slid them onto some bamboo sticks along with some tator tots to create the cheesy nugget kabobs.  Layer the kabobs on top of your favorite dipping sauce {ketchup for my littles} and add some fresh fruit for a great little lunch. As I was creating the kabob, I loved how I could actually see the cheese on top of the nugget.
#shop Tyson Nugget with Cheese_wm The kabobs and nuggets were a huge hit.  My husband missed lunch but came in a grabbed a leftover nugget.  He liked them so much that he actually requested them for dinner that night.  Of course, there were no complaints from my chicken nugget loving kids. #shop Tyson Nugget front view_wm #shop Tyson Nugget Kabobs on Plate_wm Are your kids chicken nugget lovers?  Or maybe you are like me and your husband is a big fan too?  If so, definitely give the cheesy nuggets a try because I bet they will be a winner.  You can even try the cheesy nuggets out before you buy them by visiting one of the product demonstrations at Walmarts around the country during the weekend of November 15, 2013.

You can find out more about the new chicken nugget flavors from Tyson by following them on Twitter and Facebook.

    These look pretty good! Nuggets used to be a staple in my home but after a few years I think my kids burnt out on them! It’d be nice to try something new to mix it up a little.

    • Shannah Coe says:

      My kids show no sign of burning out but it will be interesting to see where nuggets fit in as their tastes change.
