Baked Chicken Nuggets
Crispy, tangy, healthy… For anyone who finds it impossible to resist the finger-lickin' yumminess of skinless, boneless, and breaded baked chicken nuggets, you might be doing a bit of a double-take right now after reading the word "healthy". That's because traditional recipes call for added sugar in the dipping sauce, which can really pack on the calories and turn a protein-rich meal into a carbohydrate-dense disaster. Well, not anymore! Sweetly Stevia's Baked Chicken Nuggets call for stevia instead of sugar, making this an ideal recipe for diabetics and health-conscious foodies!
