My 11-year-old son thinks this Nugget in a Biscuit youtube video is hilarious. If you don’t, it’s probably because you’re not an 11-year-old boy. So when we were in Trader Joe’s together this week, he asked if we could please make it. Why not?
I told him to go ahead and round up the ingredients. He did a circuit around Trader Joe’s (yep, my kids are there often enough that they know their way around quite well) and he came back with the four required ingredients.
The ingredients and the eating technique are described eloquently in the lyrics:
Chicken Nugget, biscuit, nugget in a biscuit
Dip it all in mashed potatoes…
Dip the mashed potato covered chicken nugget biscuit in a BBQ
So there you go!
We used Trader Joe’s canned Buttermilk Biscuits and baked them flawlessly on my favorite, Silpat baking mat. Instead of nuggets, we used Trader Joe’s frozen Breaded Chicken (tenderloins) which were sized well to the biscuits and baked up nice and crispy. The recipe was rounded out with Trader Joe’s frozen Mashed Potatoes and Trader Joe’s All Natural Barbecue sauce. That’s it!
I won’t claim it’s the healthiest meal…it’s not…but it was a lot of fun for the kids.
My son and my 9-year-old daughter both loved it and said, “Mom, you have GOT to blog about this.” And so I did. Enjoy!
