Pretty much all kids (and a fair amount of adults love nuggets) but most are pretty unhealthy and lets be honest, pretty bland as well, but not these bad boys. The broccoli and cheddar give these nuggets a fab flavour. As well as being tasty on their own they also work really well in a wrap with salad, if you want a lunch idea for older children. This recipe makes 12-15 nuggets but they freeze well so you can always make a double batch so you always have some on hand for a quick meal.


  • 250g minced chicken
  • 1/2 cup of chopped broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup of wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup extra mature cheddar, grated
  • 1 egg


Pre-heat the oven to 180.

In a mixing bowl place all the ingredients and combine well using your hands. Take a baking sheet and line with baking paper. Divide the mixture, shape into nuggets (I used two spoons ) and place on the baking tray. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese in the nuggets turns golden.
