I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Chicken Nuggets

Kids love chicken fingers or nuggets. This is so much better than frozen processed chicken nuggets. Take the time to make up a fewbatches of these. Freeze them and pop them in the microwave when the kids want them. Homemade Ranch dressing or BBQ sauce tops this recipe off.
