How often do you cook with your family? I was so excited to be able to join with Lay’s to create a family friendly recipe that makes my kids happy, inspired by Lay’s Happiness Exhibit. As many of you have seen in recent months, I have fallen in love with cooking with my kids (well, my 4 year old anyways…the baby isn’t much help in the kitchen!)
Cooking with my family gives us time to talk, to discuss healthy foods and heck, it even helps momma burn a few extra calories! I created this Cheesy Potato Chip Chicken Nugget recipe because it’s a fun way to get your family to eat their veggies (broccoli), a healthy amount of protein (lean chicken), and all the while playing around with their favorite food of all: potato chips! Plus, it’s gluten free and relatively low in calories!
Using potato chips in a recipe can be surprisingly healthy, especially when paired with tasty, nutritious ingredients. You can vary this recipe by using tofu, low-calorie string cheese, crab or tuna instead of chicken, different kinds of healthy cheese or veggies (try using Garlic & Herb Laughing Cow cheese with chopped sun-dried tomato), and even Baked Lay’s potato chips instead of Classic (or try the other exotic flavors, like Garden Tomato & Bazil or Balsamic Sweet Onion). No matter how you cook it, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the question below….
