Introduction: Chicken Foot Ball Nuggets
I was just wondering what I shall make for Tailgate Contest.
Just for fun I thought of a rugby concept. I wanted a savory dish and that is how I ended up making the chicken nuggets seasoned with oregano. As a dip I have made a Garlic based white sauce.
I am sure this would be a great recipe for a Tail Gate party. It is quite simple to make and easy to serve.
Hope you like it.
