We live in North Carolina and I am a foodie. I love researching and changing recipes to fit my own needs and desires. My posts will be the Stephanie way of cooking so you will probably recognize some things and others might leave you saying that isn't for me but thanks anyway. This will allow me to share something I truly love, food and preparing it in such a way that my family and friends can feel how much I care for them.

Baked Chicken Nuggets
I explained in my Panko Bread Crumb post, that my son was wanting chicken nuggets with bread crumbs. When I make chicken nuggets with Panko bread crumbs, I bake them instead of frying them. This recipe actually evolved to a whole new level since I totally made a mistake. Good news though, my mistake turned out to be a huge success with my picky son and my Chinese teenager who said he doesn't like chicken. Want to know my mistake? I bought chicken thighs instead of chicken tenders. The benefits of the chicken thighs as my family found out are they are more moist and they almost melt in your mouth versus the sometimes dry and dense chicken tenders.
Baked Chicken Nuggets, so much better than those nuggets sold at the store.
