honey mustard chicken bites

My two boys are the pickiest eaters ever. EVER! Okay, my youngest will at least try new things from time to time, but my oldest only eats five things. Nope, I’m not teasing. He eats peanut butter, cheese, honey and bread/crackers/cereal and apples. Thank goodness for the apples!

Don’t yell at me yet. I DO try. I swear I do, but my oldest is stubborn. I can’t imagine where he gets that from. {grinning smirk}

So recently I hosted a small dinner party and I took the Hellmann’s® Chicken Change-Up picky eaters challenge! Hellmann’s® “Chicken Change-Up” aims to help parents manage dinner dilemmas in kitchens across America – and they’d love to know what’s happening at your house!

For the kids menu I had my boys help. I started off by showing them all of the ingredients before mixing/preparing. They were on board with the cornflakes, the chicken, the Hellmann’s® Light Mayonnaise, but then I got a “nuh-uh” look when I brought out the Hellmann’s® Honey Mustard. Then my oldest saw the word “Honey,” and we were back on again. {wink}

I find that letting them help, makes them more likely to try new things too. So I let them crush the cornflakes. That’s the most fun anyway! Right?!

It’s really super simple. Just mix 6 tbsp of Hellmann’s® Light Mayonnaise to 1 tbsp of Hellmann’s® Honey Mustard. Split your mixture into two bowls using  half to coat your chicken and saving the other half for dipping later. Once coated in mixture, bread in crushed cornflakes and then bake. Its as simple as 1-2-3. For full ingredients for this recipe, steps and cooking instructions, visit Hellmann’s.com. 

They were a huge hit! And not only did we make these fabulous Hellmann’s® Honey Mustard Chicken Bites,  

I served cake (decorated with printables that you will soon be able to download for free!),

and s’more brownie bites! YUM! I hope you’ll plan some of these fabulous recipes for your next family gathering!

    My kids love chicken nuggets but I feel guilty sometimes feeding them to them. :( This is so easy I’m going to have to try and start making “fresh” ones. Thanks for the ideas!
