Chicken nuggets

Chicken nuggets are basically chicken cubes marinated and coated with bread crumbs,then  fried/baked.My kids always tell that their friends usually carry chicken nuggets ,burger ,pizza and many such junk food for their lunch box .
But the fitness/health freak in me pulls me back from serving the frozen ready to cook store bought ones  .One fine day this recipe was aired on a cooking show and since then this has become a frequent one at my table or for kids lunch box.
Chicken nuggets can be had as an evening snack with some hot tea/ coffee or even as a side dish for your  meals .
The recipe follows.....
