Shake & Bake Chicken Nuggets

{with honey mustard dipping sauce}

The first time I told my husband I was making Shake & Bake Chicken Nuggets for dinner, he looked at me like I was an alien.  But when he tasted them, he was blown away.

So if you have ever eaten Shake & Bake Chicken you know the pleasure of the flavor & the convenience of the quick process.  However, once you discover that this recipe is just as quick & easy & is absolutely so flavorful, you will never want to go back to anything a box can offer you.  I mix up several bags at a time & just add in the oil when I'm ready to bake it.  It makes for quick weeknight suppers or school lunches.  The great thing about this mix is that it doesn't contain any of the harmful ingredients such as bleached flour or high fructose corn syrup, just to name a couple, that the box at the store contains.  

If you don't use baggies, just follow the same process in a glass container with a tight fitting lid.
