Guest Post-Mrs. Robinson

Hello fabulous readers! While I am away Mrs. Robinson was kind enough to step in for me.She is one rock star lady with an incredible faith and outlook on life, so be sure to stop by and say hello at her fantastimo blog! 

Hey!  I'm Mrs. Robinson for My New Wife Life.  While Lo-Mo is on vacation, I'm going to share my signature recipe with y'all.  First, let me explain that I married a 5-year-old.  Well, I actually married a 23-year-old, but he's 24 now.  Anyway, he's a very picky eater and his favorite foods are hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, and chicken nuggets.  Yes, I'm serious.  And long before we got married, he once told me that my boobs were gross.  He was obviously overcome with adoration and had a massive brain fart when he said that, so I made it my mission to have that boy fall in love with me.  Well, actually, I just wanted him to not think my boobs were gross anymore.  Since we all know the quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach, I decided to cook his favorite food!  His obsession at the time was the spicy chicken nuggets from Wendy's, and I was determined to put Wendy's to shame.  Throughout the course of our 2-week long dating relationship, 6-month engagement, and now 10-months of marriage...we've perfected the spicy chicken nugget. 

Enjoy.  :)
Mrs. Robinson's Signature Spicy Chicken Nuggets
Serving Size:  2

  • two skinless, boneless, white meat chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup House Autry Medium-Hot Breader
    • If you don't have this type of flour at home, or if you can't find it, try this (it works!):  flour + paprika, cayenne pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, Lawrey's Seasoning Salt.  Combine ingredients until the flour is a light orange/red color.
  • Canola Oil (or whatever kind of oil you prefer)
  • 2 Tablespoons Paprika
  • 3 Tablespoons Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Lawrey's Seasoning Salt

  1. Start heating up your oil first.  If you have deep fryer (like a Fry Daddy) go ahead and plug it in to let the oil heat up.  If you're going to be frying on your stove stop, get out a medium skillet and pour enough oil to fill the skillet up about half way.  You'll want the oil to cover the sides of the nuggets while they are cooking.  Set your stove eye to medium heat.  
  2. Cut the thawed chicken into bite size pieces and place them in a Ziploc Bag.
  3. Add paprika, cayenne pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, and seasoning salt to the chicken.  Seal the Ziploc bag and shake until the spices are on every nugget.  
  4. After the spices are spread around, add the flour to the Ziploc bag.  Seal & shake again.
  5. Once the oil is hot, gently add the nuggets by using tongs.  Be careful not to splash any hot oil on yourself.
  6. Allow the nuggets to cook for about 5 minutes.  Using the tongs, turn them over.  Let them cook for another 5 minutes.  Keep in mind that all of the red spices in the breading will cause them to look almost burnt, but they aren't.  While the nuggets are cooking, get a plate ready by placing a paper towel on the plate to help absorb some of the nugget's excess oil once removed from the oil. 
  7.  Remove the nuggets from the oil and place on the paper-towel lined plate.  Serve immediately with ketchup...or your preferred dipping sauce. 

Trust me when I say that fast food nuggets are nothing like these.  Trust.   



  1. Ohhhh, these look and sound amazing! I'm definitely going to be trying these. My hubby would love them!!

  2. I have been on the search lately for some new staples in our weeknight dinner rotation. I can't wait to give these a try.

    Nothing says "southern recipe" like something with Lawrey's Seasoning Salt in it!
