Paula Deen's Chicken Nuggets

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by juniperwoman

These look wonderful and easy because they're baked, not fried, and they get their flavor from sour-cream-and-onion-flavored potato chips. What an idea! Paula says to serve them with her Honey Mustard Sauce, which I have also posted. She also says that they can be frozen after baking.

I have made these more than a few times. Our favorite is when we use Salt and Vinegar chips, the more vinegar bite the better. We have also used BBQ and Sour Cream and Cheddar chips also. All are wonderful!!!
