"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!" -Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Homemade Chicken Nuggets and Honey Mustard Sauce

Yes, that's right, I said HOMEMADE! And if you know me, well, you know that I'm not that good of a cook. I found this recipe off of Paula Deen's website (not a very healthy recipe) and it was very easy and delicious! I thought I would share it with everyone, so here it is...

Chicken Nuggets with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

1/3 cup butter
6 chicken breast fillets, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
2 cup crushed sour-cream-and-onion-flavored potato chips
2 tablespoon milk
1 egg

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the crushed potato chips in a shallow dish. Beat together the egg and milk in a shallow bowl. Dip the chicken cubes into the egg mixture and then dredge them in the chips. Place the chicken nuggets on a baking sheet and drizzle with melted butter. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. The chicken nuggets can be frozen after baking. Serve with your favorite sauce, such as honey mustard or ranch dressing.

Yield: Serves 12
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Ease of preparation: Easy

Honey Mustard:

3/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice or juice from 1/2 lemon
Horseradish, to taste

2 tablespoons orange juice (more or less as needed)
Combine all ingredients except orange juice; stir well. Thin to pouring consistency for dressing or dipping consistency for dips with orange juice. Cover and chill for 2or 3 hours.
