Wow!! Amara this is a very nice and well presented hub. The recipe sounds nice and the chicken nuggets seems to be very crunchy. I like nuggets but I have never added mashed potatoes and soaked bread in it. I will try your recipe. Insha'Allah. I am sure it will turn out very good. Your dish looks lovely. I would definitely try it out for me and my family.

Nice for iftar as well. Sometimes I get bored with fritters.

May Allah Bless You Dear Sister, Ameen. In Ramadan remember me in your prayers.

Peace and Love
