Introduction: Home Made Home Run - Chicken Nuggets With Chili and Cheese
There is a hometown deli which serves their famous chicken nuggets with fries covered in spicy chili and cheese, they call it a Home Run! What is a guy to do who no longer has access to such a dangerously delectable meal? Make your own! I substituted the fries for roasted potatoes but the end result was just as awesome as the original. The chicken nuggets were procured from a NYC chicken nugget restaurant, feel free to make chicken nuggets from scratch but I'll leave that part to the professionals.
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
You will need:
a pan for roasting potatoes
Leftover chicken nuggets
Additional spices (optional)
Step 2: Roast Potato
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Cut Potatoes into half inch pieces
Toss with olive oil, salt & pepper
Roast in oven for 20-30 min, until lightly browned
Step 3: Prepare Chili
Open canned chili (or homemade if you prefer)
Heat on medium in small pot and add:
half a teaspoon of chili powder
1 teaspoon of hot sauce
1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes
heat for 10 min until hot and well blended
Step 4: Prepare Chicken Nuggets
Take premade chicken nuggets and slice into halves
Add the chicken to the now roasted potatoes and continue to heat in oven at 400 degrees for 5 more minutes
This will bring the chicken up to temp
Step 5: Combine All Ingredients
In a small baking dish start with a layer of chicken and potatoes
Cover with chili then a layer of American cheese (4-5 slices)
Bake for 5 more minutes at 350 degrees to melt cheese
Step 6: Final Step - the Seasoning
I like to add a final pinch of Lawry's seasoning salt to the top before digging in, and don't forget the honey mustard!
We have a be nice policy.
