I made these for my four year old son. Not only did he enjoy them but so did I and my father as well. I didn't have seasoned breadcrumbs so I added oregano, garlic powder and onion powder to the crumbs. I also sprinkled a little extra cheese on the nuggets before baking. I kept them in the oven a little longer than the recipe called for. They browned up nicely.
This made for an easy and simple but tasty dinner. I did use some panko crumbs with the breadcrumbs (didn't have quite enough) and seasoned the chicken with some Mrs. Dash before breading. Made a honey mustard sauce to accompany them. One to make again. Thank you for posting. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game 2013.
My husband and I thought these turned our really well, crunchy and flavorful. Unfortunately our kids weren't as excited as we were about them.
