I like spicy, eastern dishes.  And these spicy chicken nuggets served with Eastern rice !

Absolutely a perfect combination and compliment each other in the most delicious way.

Sometimes I would serve the nuggets, with a coleslaw or a crunchy green salad in a wrap or even in a bun.

Actually, if there are any leftovers, someone will most definitely have it for lunch the following day. With or without a bun/roll.
