When we were little, mom made chicken nuggets for dinner sometimes.  They weren’t the greasy, fried kind; they were baked and perfect for small children.  We had chicken and I had a desire for some childhood comfort food.  This one, however, comes with paprika; and it’s seriously easy.  It hit the spot and I felt like I was 8 again, but with an actual appreciation of spices, and portions.
