"I've tried several chicken nugget recipes for my family, and this is the only one they really liked. And they really, really like these!"

"These are absolutely delicious! The only thing I would change is making them with a little less salt and butter since they were a little on the salty side. I might even attempt to make them with fat free evap milk or egg whites instead of the butter. Needless to say though, this recipe is a keeper. My little one gobbled them up."
