Tasty chicken nuggets

    35 min

    These are a little spicy - if serving to young kids, you can leave out the dried crushed chillies and black pepper. The wheatgerm makes a nice crunchy coating.

    Altered ingredient amounts. this was a good recipe, but was not kid freindly. If you would like it kid freindly delete the chillies and half the black pepper. They tasted great. So enjoy.  -  18 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. I didn't use the wheatgerm and I used wholemeal bredcrumbs. Enjoy them.  -  16 Dec 2009


    really great and simple recipe to make. I'd not made these before. They were crispy on the outside and moist on the inside.  -  16 Dec 2009
