Deceptively Delicious....

Last week on our Facebook page we suggested blending veggies and putting them inside of your turkey meat when you make burgers as a great way to get your children to eat their veggies. Well as I was looking for recipe's, I remembered Jessica Seinfeld's book "Deceptively Delicious," and how clever it was that she had written a book based on "tricking" your kids for the good of their own health. I found a "deceptive" chicken nugget recipe that looks tasty that I think your kiddies may like.

Below is a little snippet of what the book is all about and a great recipe to get you started. She also has a great blog & website with lots of great information. Enjoy

As a mother of three, Jessica Seinfeld, like many busy parents, used to struggle to get her kids to eat right. In Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food, she shares her solutions: easy, mouthwatering recipes that even the most overwhelmed families can make—stealthily packed with unseen veggies, puréed so kids will never suspect.

Deceptively Delicious has all of Jessica's winning combinations, including cauliflower in macaroni and cheese, and spinach in brownies. She also shares tips on making healthy snacks and improving store-bought foods, as well as advice on creating a positive environment around the kitchen table. Deceptively Delicious is a godsend for all parents who want healthy kids, peaceful family meals, and to never again have to say, "Eat your vegetables!"

Chicken Nuggets
I don’t know any kid who doesn’t like chicken nuggets. Just don’t tell them what’s hidden inside!
Prep: 10 minutes Total: 20 minutes Serves 4 Packable
1 cup whole-wheat, white, or panko 1 (Japanese) breadcrumbs
12 cup flaxseed meal 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan 12 teaspoon paprika 12 teaspoon garlic powder 2 12 teaspoon onion powder 1 cup broccoli or spinach or sweet
potato or beet puree 1 large egg, lightly beaten 3 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken
breast or chicken tenders, rinsed, dried,
and cut into small chunks 12 teaspoon salt Nonstick cooking spray 4 1 tablespoon olive oil
In a bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, flaxseed meal, Parmesan, paprika, garlic, and onion powder on the paper or foil, and mix well with your fingers.
In a shallow bowl, mix the vegetable puree and egg with a fork and set the bowl next to the breadcrumb mixture.
Sprinkle the chicken chunks with the salt. Dip the chunks into the egg mixture and then toss them in the breadcrumbs until completely coated.
Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the oil. Place the chicken nuggets in the skillet in a single layer, being careful not to crowd the pan, and cook until crisp and golden on one side, 3 to 4 minutes. Then turn and cook until the chicken is cooked through, golden brown and crisp all over, 4 to 5 minutes longer. (Cut into a piece to check that it’s cooked through.) Serve warm.
