When in need of something crispy and gooey at the same time, you can turn to these bite-sized cheesy nuggets. So before deep-frying them, stuff the chicken breast pieces with mozzarella sticks for a meaty and cheesy experience. For the crunchiness factor coat them with an oregano-flavored mixture of panko and parmesan. Serving them with a dip is a must. They will be gone in no time.
