Yum! These were REALLY good! If you like Wendy's chicken nuggets, you'll LOVE these (they are a spot on copycat, IMHO). And, if you follow Teresa's directions TO THE LETTER, you'll be in for a real treat. I didn't and wish I would have.... I did what reviewer awesome in tummy did and drizzled my leftover butter mixture (I added 2 cloves minced garlic to mine) OVER my nuggets before popping them in the oven to bake. BIG MISTAKE! Although great in theory, this prevented my nuggets from browning / crisping up. To compensate, my hubs dropped each nugget in our fry daddy VERY briefly, but as a result, our nuggets were slightly OVER browned and not as tender as I would have liked. :( NOTE: Many reviewers suggest baking these on cookie cooling racks. I purchased mine from Pampered Chef years ago, but fortunately, I kept my product use and care instructions. If you own PC cooling racks, DO NOT place them in the oven!!! They are NOT oven safe! I ended up using an Airbake cookie sheet (i.e. the ones with holes in them that allow air to circulate, resulting in crisp crusts, etc.) set over a standard one to catch any crumbs that fell thru. This worked "OK," but I really think a plain 'ol cookie sheet would have been fine. If you use a standard sheet, just be sure to check halfway thru baking and "flip" your nuggets if they are not browning on the underside. Mac & cheese and tater tots complemented our simple meal. Thanks for sharing, Teresa! I'll be making these again for sure. :-)
