Number of serving: 5
1 16-oz pkg frozen California-style veggies, thawed out

1 1/2 libras ground chicken

1 teaspoon onion salt

Crispy Coating Mix (recipe to follow)

Prepare your crispy coating:

3 cups corn flake crumbs

1 cup wheat germ

1/2 cup sesame seeds

4 teaspoons dried parley leaves, crushed

1 tablespoon paprika

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1 teaspoon celery salt

1 teaspoon onion salt

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper


  • Mix veggies, chicken and onion salt together. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Grease your cookie sheet.
  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir with a wire whisk until evenly distributed. Pour into a 5-cup container with a tight-fitting lid. Seal container.
  • Label with date and contents. Store in a cool dry place. Use within 2 months or freeze. Makes about 4 1/2 cups crispy coating mix.
  • First, put a layer of crumb mixture on the countertop or cutting board. Then, grab a handful of the chicken/veggie mixture and press it down onto the crumb mixture.
  • Then sprinkle the chicken with more crumbs and press down into the meat to coat it. We used a pizza cutter to just cut bite-size squares .
  • You could just make single chicken nuggets and press them each into the crumb mixture, or your could cut them into shapes with cookie cutters.
  • Just do as you please. Now place the chicken nuggets on the prepared cookie sheet and bake them for 14-16 minutes in your preheated oven.
  • For the Yummy Oven Fries:
    Scrub 1 potato per person being served. Wedge the potatoes lengthwise. In a large (gallon-size) ziploc bag, add some olive oil. Place the wedged potatoes in the bag and seal the bag.
  • Shake well to coat all the potatoes with olive oil. You can either add your seasoning to the bag at this point, like ranch dressing mix, salt and pepper, etc.
  • We just added salt and pepper and shook well making sure each potato has been seasoned well. Place them on a cookie sheet (no need to grease) and bake in your 400 degree oven.
  • They should bake for nearly an hour. So place them in the oven approximately 45 minutes before your plan on placing your chicken nuggets in the oven.
  • Then simply place your chicken nuggets on the lower rack when there is approximately 15 minutes of cook-time left on your potatoes. Serve with bbq sauce, ranch dressing, and fry sauce.
