Perdue Chicken From Perdue Farms in this sponsored post on behalf of Perdue Farms.
Direct from the freezer to my son’s plate, in less than 15 minutes. Dino Nugget Parmigiana! Watch the transformation!
My son grew up eating chicken nuggets from Perdue. Now that he is 16 1/2, I try to be creative when I cook for him. He still loves to eat chicken nuggets, in all forms, but he also thinks he is a young adult with a more adult palate. I have been wanting to share my genius recipe with you for awhile now, and finally the secret is out!
Dino Nugget Parmigiana from Perdue Chicken, by way of Perdue Farms!
It may seem simple and logical, and it is. Three easy steps! And my son loves it!
1. Defrost nuggets in microwave.
2. Place on stove top in non-stick pan and place mozzarella on top with some tomato sauce, I ran out of home made form the weekend, so I used jarred sauce from the store, both work!
3. Heat until cheese is melted, and serve!
He loved it and ate the whole plate. Of course I had to take a candid shot, and had to promise not to post on social media where his friends could see!
I took a dish from his childhood and turned it into something better suited for his maturing palate! He is over six foot, so his portion size may be different then yours, adjust accordingly!

You are a genius! I’ve been trying to figure out how to present them to my husband. I had a few and love the taste. Perdue Farms’ products are so tasty.

Never thought to do that with nuggets. Interesting idea that I might try at home.

It is so nice how you made those nuggets parmigiana style. Teens eat so much but you must know that. I am making a meal every two hours while my son is home.
Terri Steffes says
Too fun! Now we can make chicken nuggets look all grown-up and posh. Add some spaghetti and you are in a romantic Italian restaurant.
I love how creative you are with these nuggets! I never thought about putting anything on it other than Ketchup. YUM!

Okay I’m right here with you. My boys are testing me with the amount of food they consume. I think they’d devour these Parmigiana Dino Nuggets. We must try them.
What an easy way to transform chicken nuggets! My kids always loved chicken nuggets when they were growing up, but I haven’t bought them in a long time.

Yum! These would make an awesome snack for my son to enjoy before sports practice. I love how easy they are to put together too.
This sounds like a really yummy product. I have to make sure to add this to my grocery list.

I am so used to the plain nuggets. This is a pretty good twist to it. Your soon seems to love it so much!
My son loves chicken nuggets. And he was a huge fan of dinos when he was little. I will have to grab me a bag of those.
This is a great way to spice things up. My boys love eating chicken nuggets so I may have to give this a try for them.
Melanie Walsh says
Okay I am obsessed! We eat a lot of “kid food” around here. Truth be told, I love it all. But this is a fun way to test out a new recipe in a way my kids will find safe.
My kids love nuggets! We haven’t tried Purdue brand before! I’ll have to check out my local store soon!
