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

MY REVIEW

"I made these tonight. They were easy and delicious. My kids and husband asked for seconds! I did need to double the butter and I doubled the kosher salt and they had great flavor. My nuggets only needed 12 minutes (flipped them after 6). If I had cooked them longer they would have likely been dry. My family dipped them in honey mustard dressing. So yummy! I will definitely make these again."

"These were ok. They dont' get very crispy, so I had to broil them a little. They could use a little more seasoning."

MY REVIEW

"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."
