Chicken nuggets are a fun meal to eat and a favorite with kids. This easy recipe delivers crispy, bite-sized pieces. Chicken became America’s favorite meat after World War II. Its popularity rose because of beef rationing during the war and industrial chicken farming afterward. A food science professor created chicken nuggets a short time later, in the 1950s. Chicken nuggets gained popularity after fast food restaurants added them to their menus.
