chick-fil-a copycat nuggets

Let's just be honest, I hate Sundays because Chick-fil-a is closed. So, I was thrilled when I discovered this copycat nugget recipe. I practically have to force feed chicken to my kids when I make it at home. But when I made these nuggets...silence at the table (and any mom knows how great that is!) We made these for the Super Bowl last night and I just had to share the recipe with you guys! Make them for your kids this week and you will be a hero!!
