Researchers at the University of Mississippi found that while chicken nuggets do contain a lot of chicken, it's not the kind of chicken you would eat if offered. The scientists took nuggets from two major fast food restaurants (which they did not name), spliced them open and used dye to see what types of cells were inside. The results are not pleasant. 

The first nugget was about half muscle, with the rest a mix of fat, blood vessels and nerves. Close inspection revealed cells that line the skin and internal organs of the bird.

The second nugget was only 40 percent muscle, and the remainder was fat, cartilage and pieces of bone.

Chicken fat, cartilage, organs, bones and blood vessels. Yum.
