You know how everyone goes crazy decorating cookies over the holidays? Well, there’s something else that is just as much fun to decorate, and sometimes even more fun to eat – because you can literally eat it for dinner!
I’m talking about Tyson chicken nuggets!
I headed to Sam’s Club and bought a large bag of Tyson chicken nuggets for just under $9, which is a steal compared to the prices at my local grocery stores! You can read more about my shopping trip in this Google+ story.
I also found this awesome salsa after trying it on a bagel crisp at a demo. On my diet, I am very limited in what I can eat, and salsa happens to be one of my acceptable foods!
The first thing I did when I got home was to lay out all of my supplies.
I cooked a few of the Tyson chicken nuggets and grabbed my condiments for dipping and a bag of cut up veggies to compliment the chicken nuggets – every meal needs veggies!
It is really easy to cook the Tyson chicken nuggets, you can even microwave them! You just cook them in the microwave for 2 to 2.5 minutes. This is great for us moms, as the kids can make their own afternoon snack if they are old enough!
Our first Tyson chicken nugget creation was a Tyson Chicken Nugget Tree.
I stacked five chicken nuggets and inserted a tooth pick into the center to keep them stable and started adding veggies around the base of the tree to serve as presents.
Then I covered the top of the toothpick with ketchup.
I added lots of chopped up broccoli, cauliflower and baby carrots around the base and that also helped make the tree more stable.
I think that this Tyson chicken nugget tree came out really adorable, don’t you? Angeline ate it up as her late lunch.
I also made this less-complicated Tyson chicken nugget snowman, which would be a great little lunchtime project for the little kids!
Doesn’t he look adorable and delicious?
He has just a simple tab of Ranch dressing as his face and buttons, and ketchup and a piece of cauliflower as his hat. I added two baby carrots as arms and a bit of Ranch dressing as the snow he is standing in.
So cute and fun!
