Tyson Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets with Honey Lime Mustard


As much as I prefer to cook from scratch, I occasionally need a quick lunch or dinner that doesn’t require me to do much cooking. Tyson Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets was just that a few weeks ago for a quick weekend lunch. While the chicken nuggets were cooking, I quickly whipped up homemade Honey Lime Mustard (recipe below) and a veggie to round out this meal.

I was excited when I heard Tyson was coming out with Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets and Chicken Strips. It took me awhile to find them in stores, but I eventually found the nuggets at Target in the Tyson frozen food section. Like most gluten free products, the chicken nuggets are substantially more expensive than the regular, gluten nuggets. I think I paid around $5.50 for a bag.

Despite the price, the good news is that Tyson’s Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets tasted As Good As Gluten. There’s not funky gluten free aftertaste and they taste just like a chicken nugget should – tender and juicy chicken surrounded by a crispy rice/corn breading. My husband ate them with me for lunch and said he couldn’t tell that they were gluten free. I prepared the nuggets in the oven; to avoid turning them, I used this tip from when I make GF Chicken Tenders - place the nuggets on a cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet to bake. This allows the heat to circulate so the nuggets are crisp on both sides.

The Homemade Honey Lime Mustard was a great complement to the Chicken Nuggets. It’s sweet and tangy, and literally is whisked together in a matter of minutes. The measurements in the recipe are estimates, as I put spoonfuls of the ingredients in a bowl, tasted, and revised until I got the flavor where I wanted it.

Honey Lime Mustard
·2 TBS mayonnaise
·2 tsp honey
·1 TBS spicy brown mustard

Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and adjust flavors accordingly.
