Do you keep an eye out for new ways to put a twist on meals for kiddos? Well I do, I enjoy taking something kids love but putting a twist on it so the whole family can enjoy it. Which is exactly what I did over the weekend when I made chicken nugget tacos. We were also planing on having a family game night so this was a perfect time to make a kid friendly meal and have quality family time.

Before I could make my meal I headed to Walmart to pick up some Tyson chicken nuggets, Ore-Ida seasoned fries, Heinz ketchup, and other taco toppings. {plus other groceries we needed} We also took a look at the board games section, Hasbro has a great selection. However the board game nuts we are, we already had most of them. With all our supplies picked up from the store {click here to see my whole shopping trip} and the kids excited for the meal & games it was time to get to cooking. Here’s how I made our chicken nugget tacos…


  • Tyson Fun Nuggets
  • Heinz Ketchup
  • Ore-Ida Extra Crispy Seasoned Crinkles
  • Flour Tortillas
  • Taco Toppings {Cheese, Sour Cream, Salsa, Lettuce, etc.}
First up cook your chicken nuggets in the oven as directed on package

Once cooked cut your chicken nuggets into 4 small bite size pieces {shown above} After they were all cut up I poped them back in the oven while the fries were cooking just to heat them back up.

Next its time to build your taco with whatever toppings you prefer.

Then enjoy! The kids loved their chicken nugget tacos and later even asked if we could have them and the fries again. {of course I said yes!} I think this is a new family favorite.

Later once we were all settled down and in our PJs it was time to play some Hasbro games before bed. The kids loved playing connect 4 and Battleship. Although they are only two player games we all took turns playing the winner of each round. Little Miss.A gets pretty competitive and loves winning, she ended up our connect 4 champ.

Having family game nights are extra fun and special times.

  1. what a wonderful Idea, we have game nights here we don’t have kids, but we invite family over, and cook fresh cut fries, pizza rolls, popcorn, snacky foods, and just have a great time, thanks for sharing!
