I got the recipe from the Great American Favorite Brand Name Cookbook. Works great in a deep fryer.

Made these last night for my husband, quick and easy and delicious! We both loved them, I did add half a teaspoon of chili powder to add a little kick to it.

Very moist and tender chicken nuggets! The batter was light and fluffy and the meat was perfectly cooked. I served it with a honey - mustard dipping sauce, truly better than Mickey D!

I made this recipe. However, I used no eggs and I used cajun seasoning instead of salt and pepper. It was amazing ... looked like Mickey D's, but tasted a whole lot better! Thanks for the idea!
