Another tip for packing nuggets:

When we have been eating out, we have saved our leftover ketchup packets (because we always get too many) for their lunches. Chick fil A’s are the best.

Instead of throwing them away – save them for your next school lunch. No need in those little packets going to waste!

If your kids prefer barbecue sauce instead of ketchup, save those packs too. Or maybe they like ranch for their chicken nuggets.

Whatever the sauce of choice is, save them when you have extra for school lunches.

  1. What a great idea! My son loves to take chicken nuggets to school but I hated knowing he was eating them cold. I’m definitely doing this, thank you! 🙂

  2. I do this already but I boil some water in a teapot, then pour it into the thermos and let it sit in there for 10 mins with lid on. As soon as I finish cooking the nuggets in the toaster oven, I empty the water from the thermos and dry it out thouroughly with a towel. With the internal part of the thermos now very hot, it helps maintain heat until lunchtime.

  3. You boil water. Cook chicken nuggets per instructions on package. Pour water in thermos while nuggets are cooking and let sit. When chicken is ready dry thermos. Add folded paper towel to bottom to absorb moisture so nuggets dont get soggy and seal lid. I always cook some French fries and popcorn chicken or mini corn dogs.

  4. Please answer the question : How long is it safe to eat these after packing ? Have always heard the dangers of eating chicken that cools too much after cooking.

    1. My kids usually eat them within 4 hours at school and we haven’t had any issues with it. Thank you!
