Almond Crusted Chicken Nuggets1 of 6

Then coat the nuggets in a bowl of crushed up almonds. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Put out your favorite dip and voila.

Pita Pizza Pocket3 of 6
This recipe is super fun, and your kids will love creating them with you. Take a pocket of pita bread and coat the inside with pizza sauce.
