My sons and the little ones in our family LOVE chicken nuggets. This spice combination is a recipe from Paul Prudhomme,changed up a bit.
My husband calls me Lea so I named these Lea's homemade chicken nuggets. Some of the kids dunk these in Ranch dressing or BBQ sauce.

  1. Mix cayenne,and each of the spices in a small dish.Season chicken with spice mixture and salt to taste.

  2. Side Note: I make breadcrumbs by tearing up slices of bread,grind the slices in blender until fine. You can use any bread,wheat,white,french bread.I usually freeze the ends of the bread and use them.No need to brown,they'll crisp when chicken is cooked.
