There are those who believe chicken nuggets are just for kids. I feel sorry for those people, because they obviously never tried this recipe. Crispy on the outside, soft and juicy on the inside, these battered chicken nuggets are truly the highlight of any Passover meal. I dress up these chicken nuggets all the time, by adding spices to the batter and serve them up with a delicious assortment of dipping sauces, that kids and adults all go crazy for. This recipe is from my Aunt Rachel, who patiently stands in front of her stove and makes these fresh-to-plate practically every holiday that she can. It is the quintessential batter recipe for anything that you want to deep fry.
