“My grandchildren all love chicken nuggets," writes Donna Louderback from Arkansas City, Kansas, "and they think this recipe tops those from the fast-food restaurants.” For a fun dipping sauce, mix together 1/2 cup of mayonnaise with 1/2 cup of your favorite salsa.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:5 servings


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1-1/4 cups crushed sesame snack crackers (about 38 crackers)
  • 1-1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
