Nourishing Chicken Nuggets

When was the last time you had a chicken nugget? If it came in a little red box with a small coke and fries, then it’s been too long! But we’re about to change all that, and we’re officially giving you the green light to knock back a nugget… or 3 (seriously, once you pop you can’t stop). But before you go checking our temperature, we’ve MNB’ified it of course, and kept it free from all the nasties – no deep fryer required. 

The perfect little morsel to pair with a side salad for dinner or even to have as a quick post workout protein hit, these nourishing chicken nuggets are everything and more. 

Bon appetite!
