We can all agree that the best lunch a man can consume is the humble chicky nuggy. But what if you’re a discerning adult? A man used to the finer things in life? For such an Adonis you need a superior recipe.

First you need your base. There are many nuggy brands, but the premier Dino nuggy is one of the finer options in this (very, very) humble authors opinion.

Yummy Dino Buddies!

Then comes the secret ingredient: Kirkland brand Basil Pesto. I’ve tried many brands, but this is my favorite.

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees and arrange your Dinos on a baking sheet with a dollop of pesto spread on each one. Make sure you lavish pesto on each nuggy equally. Don’t favor the clearly superior stegosaurus.

After 15 minutes remove your treat from the oven and check that you have a good amount of caramalization of the pesto. Your oven may vary.

If your nuggies meet your exacting standards of doneness you’re ready to make this meal less healthy.

That’s right. Sprinkle cheese over it. Parmesan or full fat mozzarella are both excellent options. Make sure you make a mess of it. All the cheese that misses the nuggies will crisp up and you get to nibble all the little flavor morsels.

Return to the oven for a few minutes until the cheese has crisped up.

Done nuggies

Done! Your meal is ready. Consume in private or your friends will judge you while secretly regretting their slavish adherence to behavioral norms.
