Not only do they taste amazing, but they’re super easy to prepare. First, they’ll arrive to you frozen. When you’re ready to taste them (read: inhale the whole box), you can follow Brown’s lead and bake them in the oven for a few minutes or turn the crisp factor up to 100 and drop them in your air fryer instead.
While they’re as convenient to prepare as the ones you snacked on as a kid, these ain’t your cafeteria’s chicken nuggets. Since they’re made with quality ingredients and are a plant-based alternative, they’re “rather spendy for a frozen food item,” says Brown. “But you get A LOT of nuggets, and they leave me feeling full and energized,” unlike some frozen foods that have us scrounging through the snack drawer a half-hour after mealtime.
The only downside? NUGGS have only just started popping up at select grocery stores nationwide, so the only way of getting your hands on these cuties is by ordering a box online. (If chicken patties are more your style, try newly-released DISCS instead.) But Brown says there are perks: “Their branding is very cool. I love how unique the boxes are, and they often send neat stickers with your order.”
Chicken nuggets and stickers? Our inner child is psyched.
