I made this recipe, and it is simply wonderful!! I found it in Taste of Home, and then again on here. I was out of bread crumbs, so my DD and I toasted some bread until it was pretty dry. Then we pureed it. Worked like a charm. These are simply irresitable!

I made these last nite, and DH thought they were great! We had them as an appetizer, but they can easily be the main entree. The only difference in the way I made them was instead of dipping them in butter, I sprayed the chicken nuggets with Pam before coating them with the breadcrumb mixture. I am sure if I used butter they would have been even better, but since I am trying to cut the fat, this was perfect! DH wants me to make these for our block party next month, and I will use the butter then!

This was a well received appetizer at my annual pool party/BBQ! I followed your directions verbatim, then served with a sweet store-bought plum sauce & savoury Honey Mustard (recipe #68596) for dipping. Thanx Fay!
