I am almost angry at how yummy this dish turned out. I mean, who makes homemade nuggets? You buy them frozen and heat them up for your kids while you eat something yummier. But I ran across this recipe on Cook’s Country and thought it sounded easy and delicious. So I gave it a go. And wow, best chicken nuggets ever. And not just kid food!
So then why am I angry? Because they are so dang good I’ll have to keep making them as my kids begged, “Please make these again!” And because I hate making fried food for the simple reason I just never seem to know what to do with the leftover oil. Do I dump it? What a waste! And then storing it is kind of messy too—pouring it back into a jar. And then how many times can I reuse the oil? These are all my own problems and not problems with the recipe so I’ll shut up now.
And equal parts honey and mustard made the best honey mustard dipping sauce. I don’t think that’s included on the recipe print out but it is mentioned in the video at their website. So many of their recipes call for Panko bread crumbs that it’s become a staple in my house—deserving it’s own Tupperware container in my pantry.

It’s currently free but only for the current season I believe. If you can’t tell by my previous Food/Recipe posts, I am obsessed with cooksillustrated.com and their sister sites too.
