"I like foods that are simple and scrumptious and have a little Italian flair," writes Lora Pioll-Rohrich of Everett, Washington. "We enjoy these chicken nuggets with mashed potatoes and corn."

    My granddaughter loved this. I didn't add the Italian seasoning - just a tad of oregano. Very easy to make. Will absolutely make again (my granddaughter made me promise that!)
