Spiced Chicken Nuggets and Eastern Rice

Delicious, tender and juicy Spiced Chicken Nuggets and eastern Rice (recipes for both)
I like spicy, eastern dishes and these spiced chicken nuggets served with Eastern rice, is 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.

And the rice .. well, I have served it with just about any other meat dish as well. A delicious difference to the usual plain white rice and it needs no gravy or any kind of sauce - fine by itself.
