Delicious chicken nuggets with a surprisingly good crunch. Different in design, but yummily young. Perfect for small kids and great for spending time as a family making them. Serve with your favorite sauce. The chicken nuggets can be frozen after baking.

It took a TON of potato chips for me to make this work. Not my favorite homemade nugget recipe. The kids didn't like it as it had very little flavor.

The we're OK. The kids seemed to enjoy them but I think I was expecting more flavor. I used a pack of Onion Soup mix to the chips. Glad I did.

This is a mix for the rating here. Hubby liked them a lot. I was going to rate them a 4 because of the cooking time that I thought was off. I baked them for 20 minutes at 350 and they still weren't really very browned at all. I then turned up the oven to 400 and it still took a little while for them to brown. In the meantime the chicken was done. It's always hard to get an even cut when dealing with chicken (in my opinion at least) and I think I'd cut these a little smaller so that kids could get a better bite of them. I'm not sure if the measurements of the potato chips was right on because I only used two half chicken breasts and I kept crushing more chips. I also think you need a really strong potato chip to use. I would not recommend Lay's Classics that I used----I'd think a stronger flavor with onion or garlic or ranch would be much better. I know my granddaughters would like something with more taste than what I produced. I served these with Honey Mustard II from this site. I'll give this a try with the little girls sometime soon. l I know they will like them! Thanks for this recipe.

Wasn't enough potato chips. Best to add them to a bowl as needed so they don't get gooey from batter.

First endeavor into fresh chicken vs frozen! LOL And they turned out well. Cooking time worked for me. Cut pieces a little smaller more "bite" than "nugget" size. Definitely need a stronger chip flavor. BBQ flavor was a little there as was corn chip. Sour Cream & Onion flavor disappeared for me. Pringles Kickin' Chicken Taco chips has lots of kick! So strong and spicy the way to go. Very good snack w/ honey mustard or BBQ sauce.

Turned out very moist but did not have much flavor. Next time I will add spices from thai curry to bbq to italian depending on our mood. Will make this again.

Came out amazing the kids loved it! Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I added a little seasoning to the chips. Other than that I followed directions given. Will definitely be making this again!

This was really awesome. Our picky eaters loved it! We used sour cream and onion chips and made a dipping sauce of Dijon mustard and honey for parents. Be aware the chip to chicken ratio isn't nearly enough. We used 2 chicken breasts and all of the chips. We'll definitely add this to our repeat recipe list!
