Chicken Nuggets You Don’t Have to Feel Guilty About

Chicken Nuggets You Don't Have to Feel Guilty AboutWe moved to the United States from Italy about six months ago, and the adjustments have actually gone pretty smoothly. Our family is indeed American, but a four-year project took us to Rome, where all three kids were born. Now they’re in the thick of learning all things American first-hand, including chicken nuggets.

So when I found a recipe for a homemade version online, I made a few updates and came up with a new staple for a tasty dinner that travels well, too. These nuggets have been to the park, the playground and our own table.

The technique is simple. Like you’re making meatloaf, combine 1 pound organic ground chicken with an egg and 1/4 cup whole oats plus 1/2 teaspoon each of: garlic powder, salt and onion powder and 1/4 teaspoon each of: dried oregano and dried parsley. Mix together, roll into flattened-out balls and coat with a combination of 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and 1/4 cup oat bran, just for good measure. Spray with olive oil. Bake on a wire rack at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes, then toast under the broiler for one more minute, flip and repeat.

    In the real life, the Super Bowl is mostly about several things. Pro football is just one.
    Mostly, the Super Bowl is about television.
    That’s not a slam on pro football. Football has obviously become our most favored national sport activity, for various factors. No other game, not at all Supermodel Jell-O Wrestling, could possibly bring any where next to the 108.5 million people who looked at past February’s Super Bowl.
    Will there ever be another circumstance in tv record, or even human historical past for that matter, in which hundreds of thousands of people were so eager to hear sales pitches?
    It’s almost certainly real, certainly, that almost all of people aren’t likely to take note of our favourite advertisings and race off to order the item.
