  • Reviews

  • “We love these! I make a dippings sauce with mayo, ketchup, spices and chipotle tabasco.”

  • “I have made these about half a dozen times now, and they are delicious! We usually use low-sodium onion soup mix to try to ease up on the salt content, and increase the amount of red pepper flakes to our taste. Great dipped in honey mustard!”

  • “This was way too salty for us.The onion soup mix was the culprit.That being said I loved the crunch of the dried onions.If I could find a sodium reduced onion soup mix, I would make this again. Thank you”

  • “I made them in the oven for at least 25-30 minutes.I wanted to omit the fat.That way they’re healthier.And still tender.They taste great even though I omitted the cumin and red pepper flakes because of DS.Thanks Julesong.Made for Top Favorites of 2008 Cookbooks Tag Game”

  • “Great nuggets!They were very easy to make although I think I will up the spices a little next time.Thanks for posting!”

  • “Awesome nuggets!! i halved the recipe and it worked out great.”

  • “Great quick meal.We are going to add a little more spices next time because we love SPICY!”

  • “These were excellent. I used the Ziploc bag method of coating the chicken pieces, though, putting the breadcrumb mixture in the bag and shaking it like mad. It saves a lot of time.”

  • “These nuggets were excellent! Easy to make when in a hurry for something quick. Love the flavor! Thanks for sharingthis recipe!”

  • “Made these for lunch yesterday and they were a hit!!!!I made them pretty much as directed.I did use crushed red pepper, and I probably only used about 1/8 of a teaspoon.Leftovers are in the fridge to be finished off today.”

  • “These are very good.I have made them as an appetizer and also for on top of a salad.The crispy texture and mildly spicy seasoning make them a winner.”
