  1. This is perfect for me. I love chicken nuggets, but the ready-made are so unhealthy and the meat is of such bad quality.

  13. Wait a minute!!! Why did you have to freeze the chicken for a month!!! Okay if this makes my nuggets taste like Papa John's or one of my faves I'll be crying while eating! BACK in Eswatini and this just seems like you have the secret sauce!!!

    1. In case you make a lot of them and can't finish eating them you can freeze them for up to a month.
