Reviews for Tender Chicken Nuggets for 4
"Add some Bell's to the mix"
"best chicken nuggets, I liked that their diabetic friendly"
"I haven't tried this recipe but I make one that is similar I found in a Taste of Home Cookbook. You use Ranch Dressing instead of the egg whites as a dip before the bread crumbs and my son loves them. I gave the recipe to friends at work and their kids also loved them."
"i havent tried it, HOPE IT IS GOOD"
"Very good and very easy = very important when you're a busy mom! The only difference I made with this was I made chicken tenders instead of chicken nuggets so I had to cook it longer."
"This recipe is amazing! I added hot sauce to the egg whites to make them like Buffalo chicken nuggets!"
"my kids always ask for this recipe"
"Delicious, way better than the restaurant nuggets, and very easy! I floured the chicken cubes before dipping in the egg white. It makes the breading stick better, but you may have to use an extra white, since the flour seems to soak up more."
"Excellent, easy and the whole family voted it as a keeper!"
"I also tried a gluten-free version by crushing a mixture of rice chex and corn chex, plus dried parsley and Mrs. Dash seasoning for chicken. Very good!"
"Easy to make and my picky chicken loving child loves them! I double all of the ingredients except I only use one egg white and it turns out great."
"These are so quick to make, and yummy! Me and my husband love these!!! =)"
"My Family really liked these! We used a ranch bread crumbs instead but it only increased the calories by about 1 calorie. YUMMY"
"i can't wait to try this. Real CHICKEn nuggets!"
"I make these all the time, and my 2 year old LOVES them!"
"I must say these were awesome - we served them with other finger foods at New Years and they were a hit!"
