Grilled Chicken Nugget Corn Muffins

I am sure that I have mentioned before that my brood are always. ALWAYS. hungry. A.L.W.A.Y.S. See how serious I am! 🙂

So I am always looking for kid friendly snacks, that are also packed with protein, that are also easy to whip up. Well, my kids love corn dogs and Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets…so I thought…“hum…I wonder if…I could take out the dog and put in a nugget?”

I did..they loved it…new recipe invented!

Grilled Chicken Nugget Corn Muffins


What you need:
to make 8 muffins
A package of corn muffin mix
1 egg
1/3 cup of milk
Chick-fil-A grilled nuggets


Let me again highly recommend the Chick-fil-A catering! You remember the Brilliant Brunch post using the fruit tray! Well, this time I picked up a small tray of grilled nuggets. It’s so easy..just call and order, then swing by the back of the building and call the number posted on the sign…you can’t miss it! So easy…you don’t even have to get out of
the car!

What you do:
Call Chick-fil-A and order a tray of grilled nuggets. Pick up your nuggets 🙂
Pre-heat the oven to 375. Mix the box of corn muffin mix, egg and milk in a bowl.
Line or oil a muffin tin.
Fill each muffin cup about 1/3 of the way up and drop a few nuggets in the middle.
Bake for 15-20 min.


My kids scarfed them down…fast! They loved them and asked for more! They thought the chicken in the middle was a fun surprise! haha

And a double bonus is that Chick-fil-A‘s new grilled chicken recipe is amazing! You can substitute the grilled chicken instead of the original in any salad…just a little tip next time you order one of their awesome salads!

So there you go…a semi-healthy, high protein, quick snack!

    What a delicious looking treat. The grilled nuggets would be the perfect counter-balance taste to the cornbread. I will have to give this a try in my own kitchen and thanks to Chick-fil-A grilled nuggets, it looks easy and quick
