Chicken Nuggets

When I have the time, I like to cook in batches and keep it in the freezer. This one for example tasty chicken nuggets. That way whenever Kana feels like nuggets, I can just quickly fry some for her.

I followed the ingredients of this recipe to a T and it turned out very well. But then again this recipe came from Primarasa book. A highly recommended recipe book. Their recipe never fails me and yet very easy to follow.
