These rosemary oaty chicken nuggets are a healthy twist to a classic chicken nuggets recipe.
These rosemary oaty chicken nuggets are baked and full of flavor. The copycat hot mustard dipping sauce is the perfect accompaniment.
We love making these rosemary oaty chicken nuggets because the whole family enjoys them. The kids like them best with some ketchup while we enjoy them a little more sophisticated with our homemade, copycat hot mustard. I always loved the flavor of hot mustard from the classic American hamburger chain so you can imagine my excitement when I was able to recreate it in my own home.
With the end of school year upon us and summer coming quickly, we parents need all the help we can get in the food department.
These rosemary oaty chicken nuggets are a quick and easy dinner recipe. They are also great for lunches. I personally think they pair well with both veggies or homemade french fries.
While our recipe recommends making them into nuggets, you can also bake them into chicken tenders. I also recommend using fresh rosemary because it is much more flavorful. However, you can use dried rosemary.

Bakery on Main has many amazing products but the Organic Happy Oats are one of my favorite. They are so versatile! You can enjoy them in the most obvious of ways like cooked hot as a breakfast cereal. You can also use them for a savory dinner recipes like these rosemary oaty chicken nuggets or our smoky chipotle peach meatballs. I just had to include the photo below. My 6 year old son took it and I couldn’t be more proud. He is always right by my side when I am cooking, writing on my blog or doing photography. My little guy wants to be a chef and even asked for an Easy Bake Oven for Christmas. He asks to bake in it or with me every single day. I just had to document this special photo…
