Trader Joe's Organic Chicken Nuggets: 3 Healthy & Tasty Recipes

 

Trader Joe's Organic Chicken Nuggets are lightly breaded and made from organic chicken breast and rib meat. They’re fully cooked and you’ll find them in the refrigerated section.

A fun & delicious source of protein, you can add them to a variety of dishes. We’ve included three easy-to-make finger-lickin’-good recipes below for you to try.

  • Note: The package instructions give you three different ways to heat them up: microwave, oven & air-fryer. While microwaving is convenient if you have only a minute to spare, we found that they’re tastier & crispier when made in the oven or air fryer. (And if you like them extra crispy, like we do, you may want to leave them in a few minutes longer than indicated on the package.)
