MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 6, 2014

I think next time I'll make larger nuggets but excellent and quick and easy. Very very moist.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 26, 2011

These weren't too bad but I don't think I would bother again as there are nicer recipes than this. A bit too spicy and also there were not enough crumbs for this amount of chicken.

MY REVIEW

These always turn out so moist and yummy. My husband and 2 year old love them.
