Zesty Asian Chicken Recipe

For my next cooking challenge, I decided to use Chick-fil-A Nuggets to make a zesty Asian chicken recipe dish. My boys love Chinese food so I knew this meal would be a hit. I picked up the catering nuggets from Chick-fil-A.

While the nuggets were cooking, we worked on the sauce and the rice. We use a rice cooker so you just add water to the rice and push cook.

For the sauce, you start by dissolving corn starch and rice wine vinegar in a small bowl and then set aside.

Next, you combine all of the other ingredients in a saucepan. Then add the mixture from your bowl.

The nuggets are baked at 325 degrees for 15-20  minutes.

Mix the sauce with the nuggets and pour over rice. You can also add stir fry vegetables to the meal if you want.
