Chicken Nuggets at Home

Recently, I have noticed that my quite feminine figure becomes masculine, from time to time I want something harmful. It will be necessary to work on your figure, sometimes it is required by housewives. And in order not to aggravate the situation, I began to look for what to replace such delicious fast food dishes.

I'll show you how to make my favorite chicken nuggets at home. Cook without preservatives, without synthetic ingredients, without flavor enhancers, without a variety of plastics, etc ...

Preparation takes relatively little time, but it's worth it (the stomach will say thank you). The most amazing thing is that this recipe is hard to spoil. Use the greens and seasonings that you love. I hope you will have inspiration and you will prepare really unique nuggets yourself.

If you prepare your own version of the nuggets, then post a photo in the comments!

Stage 1: Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless (these are 4 pieces of fillet)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 tablespoon of pepper
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1.5 cups vegetable oil

You will need a meat grinder to make mince, probably a food processor is quite suitable, but I have not tried it.

Stage 2: Grind Meat

Preheat oven to 200C.

What to do with the meat, I think that's clear. Of course, it is a pity to put such good pieces of meat in the meat grinder, but it is necessary. Next time you should try to chop the meat into cubes.

After the meat has been ground, add salt, herbs, and pepper.

Stage 3: Build Nuggets

In order to make all the nuggets the same and be sure that they will all cook evenly, I used a small metal bowl and scooped the balls of minced meat, putting them on waxed paper.

Gently pushing a tablespoon on the resulting balls, I made them flat.

Stage 4: Breading

The breading includes three stages.

  1. roll meat in flour (salt and pepper can be added to flour to give an additional flavor)
  2. dip the meat in beaten eggs
  3. we place nuggets on a sheet

I did this operation twice so that the breading layer was thicker.

Now you can fry!

Stage 5: Frying

Use a cast iron pan to fry our nuggets until brown crust. Fry in a large amount of hot oil. This is about 2 minutes per side.

After roasting lay out on a paper towel. And as soon as the fat is drained, we place the nuggets on the baking sheet in one layer. Bake in the oven for another 20 minutes.

Stage 6: Enjoy

We get out of cooking and enjoy nuggets cooked at home. Use your favorite sauce. I made a sweet and sour sauce about the preparation of which I will tell in the next article.
