  • 1 pound ground chicken, preferably organic
  • 1.25 cups onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 cups apple, preferably organic, peeled and grated
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 cups frozen spinach, preferably organic
  • 1 cup dried bread crumbs, homemade or store-bought, or panko crumbs work as well
  • 2 cups canola or grapeseed oil for frying



Step 1

1) Combine first seven ingredients in a bowl. Mix together with your hands or spoon. Shape into small patties.

2) Put bread crumbs in a shallow dish and press the pieces into the coating

3) Heat enough oil for shallow frying in a large frying pan. Add nuggets and cook about six minutes, three minutes per side, turning occasionally, until light golden and cooked through. Dry on a paper towel or rag and cool. Serve with a side of vegetables and fruit, and your favorite dipping sauce!

TO BAKE (instead of pan fry): Bake at 425 for about 15-20 minutes until firm to the touch.
Freezing Directions:

Put 4-5 nuggets into pint size freezer bags for individual servings and freeze. To Serve: Microwave for about 1-2 minutes, may be a little mushy. You can defrost in the fridge, and heat them up in the oven, stove top or toaster oven until crispy again.
