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

"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."
