PersonalPoints™ per serving
Chicken nuggets of any kind are always popular, and these are no exception. Consider making this recipe the next time you entertain—it can easily be doubled to serve a crowd. Pile the nuggets on a platter and serve short bamboo picks alongside so they can be picked up with ease. For a strong curry flavor, use Madras curry powder. You can freeze the extra nuggets to enjoy another time. Simply place the coated nuggets on a small baking sheet in one layer. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze. Transfer the frozen nuggets to a zip-close plastic bag and store in the freezer for up to three months. No need to thaw before baking. Just allow an extra 5 minutes in the oven.
