This mafa chicken is actually Beau’s Mom’s recipe. It has been a secret family recipe of theirs for years and years and they finally allowed us to post it on FavFamilyRecipes.
It is a family tradition of ours to make this on Christmas Eve, we actually make an entire Chinese dinner but mafa is always a staple! My husband especially loves this the next day cold (that’s if there are any left over!). They kind of resemble the nuggets at Chick-fil-A, but they are SO much better. This is truly a favorite family recipe! Thank you Walker family for sharing!!!
