Mexican Cornmeal Chicken Nuggets

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by Oolala

From Best of Friends cookbook submitted by Marylyn Gockeler. These are coated and fried. Haven't had them yet but keeping the recipe here for the future. Sounds like it would be good in a taco with lettuce and cheese.

I've made this twice now, and it's great! Super simple and tasty. Easy to modify if you want different herbs, spices, etc. This recipe is a keeper!!
