fantastic! my family loved these. The sauce really makes them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made this right now and they are the best nuggets I have ever had. They are very tender inside and crunchy outside. I used a large baking pan instead of a baking sheet and used a lot less butter. Next time I will use even less. You don't have to cover every bit of chicken with the butter, when it melts it spreads out. While making them I was worried that the chicken wasn't thoroughly covered by the chips, but when they cooked they were perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
