Americans, specially kids, love their chicken nuggets from fast food outlets. I remember once buying it, and saying to myself while eating them: This does not taste like chicken breast cutlets that I buy from market and cook them myself; they taste of something else...something like fake chicken breast meat. So stopped eating those chicken nuggets. Lately I discovered this something after reading this article by James Hamblin "Look Inside a Chicken Nugget":

Richard D. deShazo, MD, is a distinguished professor of medicine and pediatrics at University of Mississippi Medical Center. He does not see purity. At least, not anymore.

“I was floored. I was astounded,” deShazo said of the moment he looked at a chicken nugget under a microscope.
