Again, there is no photo. There was no chance. These were so good that my family emerged from the woodwork as they were cooking and pounced upon them the second they came out of the oven. As different from store bought chicken nuggets as chalk is from cheese.
These were so easy to make and so tasty that I will never, ever buy chicken nuggets from the store again. I wish I had come across this recipe 10 years ago when my kids were still at home and enjoyed ‘finger food’ for dinner. I know these would have made the grade.
These are great on their own, with a few vegies, some salad or would be terrific with some kind of dipping sauce. Or for an almost authentic (but better in every way) ‘fast food’ dinner, team them up with some homemade wedges or smashed and roasted potatoes.
