Bunny Chicken and Veggie Nuggets for Easter {recipe}

If you are looking for a fun and easy meal for your kids to help celebrate Easter I  think I may have found a winner.  Bonus–you can sneak in veggies!  I found a recipe over at Cheeky Kitchen that I tweaked using what we had on hand in order to create this one.

Ingredients:
1 (16 oz.) package of favorite mixed vegetables, thawed
1 egg
1 lb. ground chicken
1 tsp. onion powder
1 1/2 – 2 c. panko bread crumbs
Salt & pepper to taste
Cooking spray

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Lightly spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray
  3. Put the veggies and egg into a food processor and blend well.  It will be a little bit chunky.
  4. Add the ground chicken and onion powder to the veggie mixture and mix together well.
  5. Spread the bread crumbs evenly on a plate and add salt and pepper to the top.
  6. Roll about a tablespoon sized amount of chicken mixture into a ball and roll this ball in the bread crumbs until well covered.
  7. Form the nugget into a rectangle.  Push down with your finger on the center top in order to create ears.  You may need to pull up on the ears to elongate.
  8. Once you have the nugget shaped into the perfect bunny place on the cookie sheet.
  9. Bake the Bunny Nuggets for about 16-18 minutes.  Depending upon how thick you make them you might need to add 2 minutes to this.  Ours took about 18 minutes total.

    • Thanks, Karissa. Yes, I actually posted this last year (comments are gone because I switched from blogger). But, I thought it was just in time this year!

      • It was just in time!!! So… sorry my comment got cut off up there. I am not sure what happened mid-sentence! I think it was “Thanks for making this and sharing with us!” LOL Anyway, I hope that WordPress is working out for you, I know you made a great (and difficult) decision switching!
