“I saw this recipe on an episode of Paula Deen's show and tweaked it to make it a bit easier. These nuggets can be made for dinner or even served as appetizers for a party. I've found that regular sc&o chips work better than rippled ones, but you can use either. Also if you bread the chicken in a large ziploc bag clean up is SO much faster. You could also use a cooking spray instead of the butter. Enjoy!!”
