Do your children love chicken nuggets as much as my boys??? My boys would eat chicken nuggets everyday if I would let them. It can be costly to buy them at the store so I decided to try and make my own. These were a huge success with the boys and took no time at all to make. I served them with Homemade Sweet Potato Fries.

  1. this sounds like a great recipe. I have a large family and, like your boys, most of them would eat chicken nuggets every day, along with pizza and spaghetti…ahaha.
    Have you tried to freeze your recipe? If so, does it freeze well? I’d like to make more than we will eat in one sitting and freeze the rest of them for another time. What do you think? Thank you!
