Chicken Nuggets are something that everyone has had before at some point in time. If you have picky eaters in your house, you might have them more often then others. Parents often pick up Chicken Nuggets in large bags from the freezer section or at fast food drive-thru’s. These are not Chicken Nuggets, don’t fool yourself. They are seriously lacking in flavor and texture. Instead of feeding your family the fake imitations, serve up some of these awesome, flavorful, and easy homemade Chicken Nuggets.
This Chicken Nuggets Recipe is so tasty, and simple you’ll never want to buy the alternative again. The panko bread crumbs make for a super crunchy coating to tender chicken pieces. Adding in the Ranch mix to the bread crumbs is what really gives them flavor and makes them super special. You don’t need a deep fryer to make these delicious nuggets, I fry them up in a large frying pan on the stove top. You can serve Chicken Nuggets with a nice honey mustard sauce, ranch, or my favorite, blue cheese dressing mixed with some of my favorite hot sauce. So amazing.
