Normal chicken fingers can be a bit boring sometimes, am I right? Don’t get me wrong, they were a childhood favorite of mine, but these days I’m looking for a little more.

Even though they aren’t fried, these nuggets are not lacking crunch. Don’t be afraid to load them up with pretzels. After eating these, a regular chicken nugget will just be a disappointment.
