Homemade chicken nuggets with the same texture and taste as the store ones. I have seen Nigella Lawson on TV using this method to make the nuggets. This is her recipe.
My daughter loves these nuggets, because they are exactly like the ready to eat ones. You can freeze these nuggets too after coating for 15 to 20 days. Take them out and deep fry them serve them as One Bite Appetizers to your guest.
Sending this to BM#54 week 3 day 2 under the theme " One Bite Appetizers".
250 Grams Chicken breasts, cut into ½ inch cubes
1 Egg - beaten
½ Cup All Purpose flour
1 Teaspoon Garlic powder
1/2 + 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper powder
1/2 + 1/4 Teaspoon salt
Oil for frying
Pat dry the chicken pieces.
Beat egg in a shallow bowl, add the chicken pieces, garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon pepper powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt, mix well and keep aside for 30 minutes.
In a zip lock bag mix the flour, 1/4 teaspoon pepper powder and salt, shake well so that the seasonings are incorporated.
Take a chicken piece at a time from egg mixture, transfer into the bag, shake the bag well to coat evenly.
Transfer coated chicken on to a plate. Repeat the process till all the chicken pieces are done.
Heat oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat. Deep fry the chicken pieces in a single layer for 2-3 minutes without stirring them till done. Transfer on to a paper towel lined plate. Repeat process with remaining chicken pieces, serve.
