Rindy's Radar: EAT!'s Chicken Nuggets

Which came first- The chicken or the egg? This is how I served the chicken nuggets, on my deviled egg plate and an Easter ramekin to hold the sauce. I laughed - my children didn't. Oh how we mom's entertain ourselves!
Once in a while a recipe you read on someone's blog will get your attention. That is exactly what happened when I read EAT!'s Chicken Nuggets blog! I could not get those things out of my head. I knew it was a meal my kids would love - but those tasty little morsels looked like I would love them too! I am not a big "fryer" girl. I can't usually work up the muster to make my kitchen into a disaster area (look at pictures below) for the sake of one meal; let alone the smell that lingers through the day whenever you fry something. Those darn chicken nuggets kept "Chirping" in my brain. One rainy day - I decided - today is the day. I have nothing on the calendar and nuggets on the brain, so I decided to make my kitchen a disaster area and my family one happy flock!!!

EAT!'s Chicken Nuggets:
I did not have Penzey's Chicago Steak Seasoning so I bought Sylvia's chicken coating in the store and it was very yummy. The package said it would make Col Sanders cry - so you have to try a product that can even make a dead guy cry - right?

Remove the nuggets from the oil and drain on a paper towel lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt. Serve with honey mustard, barbecue sauce or EAT!'s Dill Sauce.

EAT!'s Dill Sauce:

I added a teaspoon of lemon juice and made it more into a dill tarter sauce - yummy both ways!

My kids opted for the honey mustard route: 2 Tablespoons honey to 1 teaspoon yellow mustard.
More Mayo for me - Yeah! Can you really ever get enough of that "White Butter"?

Hi. Stopped over from PW after reading your Zune comment.

Just wondering, do you use actual chicken and breading, or is it an improvement on nuggets? Curious...

Like your site.

Pamela - You can find the actual recipe on You process real chicken breasts in a food processor, shape into balls, coat them, and then deep fat fry them. They are sure tasty. I feel they are better for my kids since I use organic chicken breasts.
