We are not perfect eaters, but we’re always looking for ways to make trades & try to turn our daily foods into better bites. My kids, like many others, are always good for a chicken strip or a nugget. However, I think by now, most of us have seen the infamous chicken nugget video? Our trade on this food is Oven Fried chicken.
The great thing about replacing chicken strips/nuggets with an oven fried chicken recipe is that it gives us control in the products we use and it gives us a chance to explore and chat not just about other food possibilities, but about regions where you might find popular foods like fried chicken. It offers us a chance to chat about states and maps and the variations in popular foods as it relates to where we live. Family discussions along with ‘good eats’ is always a great combination.
