    Preparation of the Nuggets:- A nugget is a bite-size morsel from the
    list of optional nugget ingredients. You can use one ingredient alone
    or in combination with others ingredients. (One pound of nuggets will
    yield 4-6 servings.)

    Nugget Ingredients

    raw shrimp (shelled and deveined)
    chicken or turkey (skinned and deboned); cut into nugget sizes

    peeled potatoes cut into 3/16 inch thick slices
    peeled sweet potatoes cut into 3/16 inch thick slices
    mushroom caps
    bermuda onions cut and separated into rings
    cauliflower florets
    broccoli florets

    Preheat cooking oil. Add a few drops of sesame oil for flavor.
    Use a good thermometer and bring the cooking oil to 370 degrees F.

    Beer Batter

    1 lb nuggets
    1 c flour
    1 t baking powder
    1/2 t salt
    1 whole beaten egg
    1/2 c beer

    Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Beat in egg and
    beer (Pilsner Urquell or Martiner are both good beers). Dip nuggets
    in batter, coating them well. Fry the nuggets in cooking oil until
    browned. Drain on paper towels and keep warm.

    Sweet-and-sour Pineapple Sauce

    1 T cornstarch
    1 T sugar
    1 t salt
    4 T vinegar
    1/2 c pineapple juice
    1 c pineapple chunks

    Mix the cornstarch, sugar and salt with the vinegar. Add pineapple
    juice. Cook over low heat, stirring steadily, until thickened.
    Arrange the batter fried nuggets and pineapple chunks on a dish
    and pour sauce over all.


    Chicken Nuggets With Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

    Serves 12
    Recipe By: Paula Deen

    2 cup crushed sour-cream-and-onion-flavored potato chips
    2 tablespoons milk
    6 chicken breast fillets — cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
    1/3 cup butter — melted

    Honey Mustard:
    3/4 cup mayonnaise
    3 tablespoons honey
    2 tablespoons yellow mustard
    1 tablespoons lemon juice or juice from 1/2 lemon
    Horseradish — to taste
    2 tablespoons orange juice (more or less as needed)

    Preheat oven to 350F
    Combine all ingredients except orange juice; stir well. Thin to
    pouring consistency for dressing or dipping consistency for dips with
    orange juice. Cover and chill for 2 or 3 hours.
    Spread the crushed potato chips in a shallow dish. Beat together the
    egg and milk in a shallow bowl. Dip the chicken cubes into the egg
    mixture and then dredge them in the chips. Place the chicken nuggets
    on a baking sheet and drizzle with melted butter. Bake for 15 to 18
    minutes, or until golden brown. The chicken nuggets can be frozen
    after baking. Serve with your favorite sauce, such as honey mustard or
    ranch dressing.
