You have Lisa from Sweet Mandarin to thank for this little gem, she is the one that taught me that the best chicken nuggets are done just using potato starch which is naturally gluten free, a quick little Chinese cooking tip! These are whipped up so fast and taste better than any other chicken nuggets out there!
