Whole family loved these & they were easy to make. The second time I made them I did several batches & used various flavors of chips. I also use the honey mustard recipe for everything including salads. I have also cut chicken into strips but the nuggets are everyones favorite! No grease to fool with either. Love this recipe not only for the grandkids but for me too! Thank you Paula!

WONDERFUL!!!!! I made this recipe for a big football last year and everyone is still talkin abt it!! If you are looking for a little more flavor try adding ranch dressing powder before adding the butter smile

First of all, I have never tried a recipe that was not delicious. Thank you. I watched you visit to Dr. Oz show, and Paula my heart ached for you, on the smoking issue. Please know that I will lift you up in my prayers everyday, that God will give you the strength, courage, and grace to quit. You are such an amazing woman, one that I greatly admire. I am 74 years old and I think you are truly wonderful. I admire you just the way you are, but like Dr. Oz said, "he wants you to be healthy and live a long, long time." So do I. Love, Edna Buff Just hope you get to read this, was not sure where else to write.

I love this simple recipe and my grandkids love the nuggets. As a switch I have used BBQ flavored chips and drizzled the chicken with a little honey bbq sauce which my husband loves. No grease to worry with, they are light and absolutely wonderful!!
