No bake energy bites, melt-in-your-mouth chicken, chicken and veggie nuggets

No bake energy bites:

I didn't make any modifications other than leaving out the chocolate chips and using creamy peanut butter vs crunchy, however if baby is under 1 you can sub the honey for maple syrup and make the bites really tiny.  :)
Melt-in-your-mouth chicken breasts

I used thin cut chicken breasts (1 kilo worth- so a little over 2 lbs).  I also used 1/2 c mayo and 1/2 c plain full fat yogurt.  Next time I'll try a lower ratio of mayo so it's even healthier-- like 1/4 c mayo, 3/4 c yogurt.  I also used reduced sodium season salt, but if baby is under 1 you might want to use even less.

This recipe is SO easy and fast, and it tasted AMAZING!
Chicken and veggie nuggets:

I didn't have carrot, so I finely chopped 1/2 a red bell pepper instead.  These turned out great, and I put a ton in the freezer for later!
