My 3-year-old is going through a stage where he'll eat only chicken nuggets and French fries. I like to make these golden nuggets for him so I know what he's eating. They're so good, we like them, too! —Amanda Livesay, Mobile, Alabama

Quick and easy. I would like to add if a kid is hungry enough he will eat a variety of things. Only serving what they think is all they will eat is a big mistake. Makes for a picky eater that is a pain for anyone stuck with cooking for them the rest of their life. I use pickey loosely because it gives the impression of a person with a palate for good food, wihich of course is just the opposite.

Chicken was dry and tasteless - I even put some Italian seasoning and a little garlic powder in to kick it up - almost made it for company last week - so glad I didn't!

These are really yummy!! Good for 2, 3, 6, 30, 65 and even 70 year olds. Quick and easy with a lot more flavor than most nuggets.

These were so easy and so good. I have a grandson who is allergic to poultry. I think I will try these with pork. Then he can also have Nuggets.
