Gluten-free Chicken Nuggets

When the boss is away, the girls and kids will play!! So, when Lisa goes out of town, Robbin and I usually think of something to get into! This time we decided to get my daughter, Summer, involved too and share her love of cooking and how easily it can be to get your kids involved with you in the kitchen.

The BEST thing about this recipe is that your kids will absolutely LOVE it! This is a recipe that people of all ages will enjoy and want to go back for seconds! It cooks up quickly and is a fantastic and healthy alternative to a kid friendly food.

We served ours up with a family favorite side dish of cinnamon baked sweet potato chips!
