There’s nothing quite as homestyle and comforting as a flavorful slow-roasted chicken with hearty sides. So that a chain exists that specializes in exactly this has always made that restaurant a gem – but now they’ve gone and done something that has made roasted chicken even more enticing.

Boston Market has launched Rotisserie Chicken Nuggets. These nuggets are reminiscent of the chain’s familiar signature rotisserie chicken, but adapted into a form perfect for snacking or eating on the go.

Traditionally, rotisserie chicken is made using a skewer or spit, which holds the chicken over a heat source in a way that leads to even cooking and less fat and grease. These nuggets pay homage to that concept, as they are roasted using a proprietary method involving a rotating basket. This maintains the rotisserie flavor, and often a healthier alternative to other nuggets on the market, which are fried and perhaps greasy, and usually involve breading. The nuggets are marinated with Boston Market’s rotisserie chicken seasoning or spicy seasoning, and then made-to-order and roasted in the rotisserie oven.

“The Rotisserie Chicken Nuggets will set the new standard for nuggets,” said President and Chief Rotisserie Expert for Boston Market, Jay Pandya, in a statement to the media. “They are bigger than our competitors, healthier than fried alternatives, and packed with flavor — there is no other true rotisserie option on the market.”

These nuggets offer a healthier alternative to other chicken nugget options, but also with the possibility to have more fun side dishes as well. The new nuggets will be available as part of various combo meals or a la carte with a variety of dipping sauce choices. There’s also kid’s meal and catering platter options. So, if you want those nuggets with your favorite classic Boston Market side, be it mashed potatoes or mac and cheese, that’s now possible, versus the fries or onion rings available on most fast-food menus.

But, of course, the best part of a nugget is that it’s bite-sized and easy to grab and go. So, if you want to get those nuggets on their own and enjoy them as you head out on your commute, that’s a great plan too!
