Reviews for Crispy Chicken Nuggets
"I think next time I'll make larger nuggets but excellent and quick and easy. Very very moist."
"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."
"These always turn out so moist and yummy. My husband and 2 year old love them."
