Mini Breaded Chicken Bites

For tots and tweens, chicken nuggets are life, right? For a healthy, even tastier version, my baked bites make for the perfect after school fuel. The best bit? They are just as yummy eaten cold for lunch too! And that’s not all – because the bread is fortified with that all-important Vitamin D and calcium, it’s a school dinner winner!
