Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Homemade Chicken Nuggets

You’ll Need:

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. parsley
3/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. pepper
3 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 c. flour
2 c. canola oil

How To:

Heat oil in a heavy duty skillet or saucepan on medium-high heat.

While oil is heating, cut chicken into cubes, then place in a food processor. Process chicken into a fine paste. Transfer processed chicken to a bowl. Combine salt, parsley, oregano, onion powder, and pepper. Sprinkle over chicken. Combine well.

Whisk eggs together in a small bowl. Combine the flour and salt and put it on a plate.

Roll chicken paste into 42 small balls. Roll in flour, then coat with egg. Roll in flour again. Use your fingers to press the ball down to make a nugget.

Once oil is hot, place as many nuggets as possible in oil and fry until bottoms are golden. Turn and fry until other side is golden – about 4 minutes per side. Remove to a towel-lined plate to drain. Serve hot.
