I was a little disappointed and maybe a little relieved that I could not taste the chocolate in this recipe! I also found that frying the chicken over med-high heat was too high--the chicken was dark brown on the outside and raw in the middle. The coating was crispy and delicious, though. I will make this again, omitting the cocoa and cooking on a lower heat, and I think I will end up with an awesome recipe for chicken nuggets!

As the recipe is written, the cocoa powder really doesn't add much. I have made chili in the past with cocoa powder so I added some chili powder and garlic powder as well. It was fantastic with those additions. Cocoa really enhances chili flavors. Try it this way you'll like it!!

Although not what I was expecting, this turned out well. Cocoa adds nothing to this, I'm not even sure why it's an ingredient. I couldn't taste it, smell it or see it. So don't let it scare you from trying this. This is just another fried chicken nugget recipe. Everyone who tried it liked it. Thanks for sharing.
