Healthy Asiago Chicken Nuggets

Healthy Asiago Chicken Nuggets
I know what you're thinking.
Not in like, a literal-I can read your mind kind of way...although sometimes I have felt like I can sort of read minds...I am fairly certain I'm psychic-laugh all you want but I have dreams that come true!! topic. Anyhow...

I assume you're thinking: "Hmm, I wonder how many different ways Kayle can make chicken?"

The answer is-a lot. I'm sorry that my picky-ness is being taken out on all of you, but, well...that's just the way the cookie crumbles I guess.


Ah! I'm like all over the place today. Yes, so, chicken. These are actually a little different! They're like delicious chicken nuggets we all know and love-but healthy AND a little gourmet tasting because of the asiago cheese. Trust me on this you guys.

(On a completely un-related side note: I'm doing the coolest thing today. Last week I auditioned for the part of 1 of a set of twins in a pilot. They really like me and are "strongly considering" me, but they're having a hard time finding someone to play my twin. SO-today I'm going to go read with a bunch of girls they found who look like me to try to find me a twin! Isn't that SO AWESOME??! I might be over-excited about this....BUT I DON'T CAARE! :p)
