These homemade Chicken Nuggets (with sweet potato!) are an easy toddler dinner that parents will enjoy, too.
– Ground chicken – Sweet potato: You’ll want to use fully cooked homemade mashed sweet potato or canned or jarred sweet potato puree. – Bread crumbs – Salt – Onion powder
Mash together the chicken, sweet potato, salt, and onion powder in a medium bowl with a potato masher or a large fork.
Place the bread crumbs into a separate shallow bowl. Form the chicken mixture into 1-tablespoon-size balls and roll in bread crumbs.
Flatten slightly (or form into tot-shapes) and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Optional: Spray or brush lightly with olive oil.
Bake for 22-24 minutes at 375 degrees F or until golden brown on the bottom and cooked through. Remove from oven, let cool for a minute or two and serve warm.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat for 6-8 minutes in the oven at 375 degrees F.
