The best ways to make chicken nuggets at home - 9 recipes

By lazar


I have yet to meet a child (or more honestly speaking an adult) who does not appreciate a succulent batch of chicken nuggets. Although the obsession generally begins in childhood, captivated by the colorful ads of their almighty king; Ronald McDonald, it is one that can truly stand the test of time. At the near ancient age of 23, I am proud to state that chicken nuggets remain a staple in my diet. If you are one of the few narrow minded individuals who are about to judge , I urge you to first visualize my most coveted chicken nugget recipe; tender chicken breasts carefully chopped and crusted in Miss Vickie’s Sweet Chili and Sour Cream potato chips, dipped in a tangy homemade Honey-Mustard Mayonnaise- Dijon sauce.
