Easy Chicken Nuggets - The Southern Lady Cooks

Chicken Nuggets with Homemade Ranch Dressing is a main dish or for snacking during ballgames or while watching movies.  The ranch dressing is great with lots of meats and chips, too. We love chicken nuggets and I sometimes serve them as an appetizer when family or friends visit.

Chicken nuggets and homemade ranch dressing is a great recipe anytime.
