My kids love chicken nuggets, but I wanted mine to be their favorite chicken nuggets. I suspected that if I combined chicken nuggets with cheese it would be a hit.

I didn’t want to fry them, but, rather, bake them to golden brown crispiness, giving them the added benefit of lower oil content.

Wow! They were a huge hit, bigger than even I had hoped, and I know I can use them both as a lunch or as a snack when they arrive home hungry from school.

You probably will notice there’s no salt added. The lovely Cotija cheese adds just the right touch of salt to the recipe. And I was so pleased to see how beautifully the Panela cheese softened to just the right consistency inside.
