Chili’s Shanghai Wings

Chili’s Shanghai Wings
Several years ago, Chili’s Restaurant served Shanghai Wings, they have since taken them off the menu. This is a great recipe to have on hand because it is so easy to change the sauce that is served with it. Try using frozen chicken nuggets for a quick meal or just for noshing.
