These little chicken nuggets taste exactly like their restaurant clone, except you know exactly what's going in them and how fresh they are. Fix these for your kids or just indulge yourself.

By no means does the chicken taste bad, but it doesn't remotely taste like McDonalds. My husband liked them, but my son wasn't interested despite how close they looked like the original.

My husband and I followed the recipe exactly...and they did not work. Not sure what we did wrong even after rereading the recipe several times. But with four chicken breasts wasted we can't afford to keep trying them.
