Fun Fact, The chicken nugget was invented during the 1960's by Robert C. Baker, a Poultry Scientist, and member of the American Poultry Hall of Fame (yes, there is such a thing.) The nuggets were made from chicken breast meat, cut to look like nuggets, then breaded and fried in oil... An American classic was born! .
