Zucchini Parmesan Crusted Chicken Nuggets

Believe Me, if I got my household to consume them, you can get yours to. Plus, I have actually never ever satisfied a kid who denied chicken nuggets. Never ever.

These are likewise insane simple to make. Cover the cubed chicken in butter milk and after that simply shred the zucchini and capture out the liquid with a paper towel. Mix the shredded zucchini with some crushed corn flakes, cornmeal, a couple of flavorings, salt and pepper. Then bake and dig up.
