Chicken nuggets were a staple in my life growing up, but by kids hate frozen chicken nuggets! I guess that it is kind of a blessing and a curse (a blessing because it isn't good for them to eat such processed food, but a curse because it sure would be nice to throw some nuggets in the oven and have them ready in a matter of minutes). I saw this recipe a couple of years ago on local TV program, copied it down as fast as I could, and it ended up being a huge hit with my kids (and husband!)! And really, it is pretty quick to throw them together . . . once you try them, you'll never go back.
3 cups corn flakes
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder

2 large eggs, beaten
