I made this recipe for PAC Spring 2009. The chicken nuggets were so simple and quick to make and tasted awesome on their own and with the yummy chili sauce. The sauce was also simple to put together and had a great tangy taste that went perfectly with the chicken nuggets. Awesome recipe, I will definitely be making these again soon!!
