This week I whipped up a new recipe using Janes Star Wars Chicken Nuggets. I’m not a huge cook so when I say I made a recipe you have to understand…it was simple, easy and the whole family loved the recipe I created so much…
There was nothing but crumbs left on the plate after 5 minutes!!
Our family has used Chicken Nuggets as a quick and easy protein choice for years. We always try and choose healthier nuggets made with white meat like these Janes nuggets. They’re an easy choice since they’re low in saturated fat, provide a source of protein and a source of iron+ and have no trans fat, hydrogenated oils, artificial flavours or colours. Plus we’re huge Star Wars fans so these Star Wars nuggets make lunchtime fun!
Lately, I’m really trying to get my kids to EAT MORE VEGGIES. You know what I’m talking about right? It’s so hard to get them to take veggies with their school lunches.
My solution? Janes’ Yoda Dip! It has a lot of veggies in it but you can’t really taste them. It tastes really cheesy and it was pretty easy to make too. I wanted an easy way for my kids to be able to take it to school so I combined Janes’ Yoda Dip and the Star Wars chicken nuggets to make:
These bites are simply Star Wars Chicken Nuggets with Yoda dip spread in between them to make an easy to eat and healthy snack kids will LOVE to take to school! Just put the chicken nuggets in the oven to bake according to the directions on the box and then whip up the Yoda dip while they’re baking.
Janes Yoda Dip
- 1 box Janes Star Wars Chicken Nuggets
- 1 block light cream cheese
- 1 cup broccoli florets
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup chopped red pepper
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 2 green onions, coarsely chopped
- Prepare the Chicken Nuggets according to the package directions.
- Meanwhile, combine cream cheese, broccoli, Cheddar cheese, red pepper, milk, Dijon mustard and green onion in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until vegetables are very finely chopped and mixture is well combined.
- Transfer the Yoda Dip to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on High, stirring twice, for 5 to 7 minutes or until hot and bubbly throughout. Serve the Yoda Dip with Chicken Nuggets. (Or use it to make Yoda Bites or serve with Tortilla Chips!)
I learned that you should put some of the milk in the food processor first so that the ingredients mix together faster and that you should let the dip cool completely before spreading it on the nuggets so it stays better. We also found out that the leftover Yoda Dip makes a great dip for tortilla chips if you heat it back up! Perfect for parties!
