Fun Charlie Brown Chicken Nuggets. Perfect for watching the new Peanuts Movie!


  • Tyson Chicken Nuggets (as many as you need)
  • American Cheese, sliced (as many as you need to cover the chicken nuggets. I found I could cover 3 nuggets with 1 slice)
  • BBQ Sauce


  1. Cook the Tyson Chicken Nuggets according to the instructions.
  2. Allow the Chicken Nuggets to cool before handling. Cut the American Cheese to fit the top of the chicken nuggets.
  3. Lay the cheese on top of the chicken nuggets and return to the oven or microwave to allow the cheese to melt.
  4. Remove the cheese covered chicken nuggets.
  5. With your BBQ sauce, make a zig-zag on the chicken nuggets to resemble Charlie Brown’s shirt.


If you BBQ sauce does not have a squirt top, put your sauce in a zip lock bag and snip a small hole in a corner. Then apply the zig zag on the chicken nuggets.
