Party Food: Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Chicken nuggets

This is a great party idea. Kids and adults love fried chicken nuggets! Homemade chicken nuggets are soooo much better than anything you can buy in the store or at fast-food restaurants. Serve them on a platter with ranch dressing, honey mustard, and/or sweet and sour sauce for dipping. Supply a small, attractive container of toothpicks by your chicken nuggets – no forks required! Here’s a suggestion: Don’t make your chicken nuggets too uniform in shape and size. That way, your party guests will know they’re getting homemade chicken nuggets instead of the processed kind.
