What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces

OOPS. I thinkest I am the one not understanding.. Haven't had my coffee today. Finally got it!

I think I would mix the buttermilk and egg together and THEN shake in the dry mixture.

Something strange about steps 3 an 4. So are we shaking the chicken in the bag in step 3 and then in step four we DRAIN the chicken? From what? The bread crumb mixture? Then add to eggs and shake in bag AGAIN? Either I am not understand this or someone goofed.

No one in my family liked these except myself. They are entirely too salty and the Grandkids didn't like them at all.

These tast so good! Grandkids love them too!

i hate ranch dressing.

so why are telling us ?

do you like chicken nuggets???

I recommend using Italian (a little less than required, it's much more wet) I don't use Ranch, Either. :) -that might be 'helpful.'

We can't fix stupid.

Simple and looks delicious, I want to try it.
