For All You Picky Eaters: Homemade Chicken Nuggets and Honey Mustard

Do you have picky eaters in your house? I’ve got just the thing, homemade chicken nuggets. And to top it off, the most popular dipping sauce, creamy honey mustard. My son isn’t a picky eater, but he sure does love chicken nuggets. What kid wouldn’t? Deep fried crispy chicken, who could say no? I love to serve these with baby carrots and sugar snap peas. It makes a really fun finger food dinner that we all love.

This also makes the best thing to take to a summer cook-out where there’s going to be alot of kids. At a typical cookout, you’ve got hamburgers and hotdogs. Hamburgers are too big and difficult for very young children, and lots of people don’t serve their kids hot dogs because of nitrates. These make the perfect, delicious alternative to take-out salty chicken nuggets. I’ve made these for many family cookouts, and no kids can resist them.
