Reviews for Parmesan Chicken Nuggets
"Very tasty! The panko crumbs made the nuggets really crispy. Definitely a keeper!"
"Very good and quick. Used boneless strips. Served with chunky salsa"
""Soo yummieeei recently found one of best recipe site for all type of chicken recipeshttp://www.reciflix.com/#/category/nonveg/subcats""
"Everyone in my family loved it. Keeper."
"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."
"My toddlers love them. Easy to make and it is healthier than frozen meals."
"Yeah ,its a good recipehttp://www.bewareofdrugs.com/amazing-healthy-recipes-for-kids/"
"These were ok. They dont' get very crispy, so I had to broil them a little. They could use a little more seasoning."
"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."
"I've made this recipe twice since receiving Simple and Delicious magazine. My husband just raved about it. I definitely will make these again."
