Herby Chicken Nuggets with Spiralized Sweet Potato Curls recipe by Annabel Karmel

Herby Chicken Nuggets with Spiralized Sweet Potato Curls

The whole family will love this Herby Chicken Nuggets recipe. Enlisting the help of a sprializer will add some serious oomph to leftover veggies! Simply baking sweet potato curls in the oven with a little oil and salt and pepper or herbs turns them into the most delectable dish (and adds oodles of child appeal to everyday vegetables). If you don’t have a spiralizer you can grate ribbons with a vegetable peeler instead.
