Chicken Nuggets Parmesan Recipe

Chicken-Nuggets_Parmesan-Recipe Does your family love cheese and chicken nuggets? My kiddos love both of these things and I’m always trying to mix things up with our meals so after seeing what we had to work with for Supper I decided to try something different with them. This recipe is super simple and is ready in very little time making it a great dish for those busy nights.
