Chicken Nugget Recipe, Homemade Chicken Nuggets
Healthy Homemade Chicken Nuggets? Can it be done? Yes! Well maybe. These chicken nuggets are deep fried so I guess this depends on your idea of healthy. Oven baked would be healthier… but even deep fried, these have got to be healthier than the smashed up leftover chicken, that makes up most of the prepackaged chicken nuggets you can buy.
2 boneless skinless chicken breast.
1 cup flour (I use whole wheat)
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup milk
Slice your chicken breasts into strips or nuggets. Set aside.
Lightly beat one egg. Mix in all other ingredients. You should have a somewhat thick batter.
Dip your chicken pieces in this batter. The trick is to get the batter to stick to your chicken… It’s not easy. Dip it thick and it seems to work ok.
Fry your chicken pieces in a deep fryer about 4 minutes in or until golden brown. Check a nice thick piece to be sure they are done through.
Fry 2 or 3 minutes in or until golden brown. Turn and brown the other side. Total time will depend on the thickness of your chicken.
Serve these with Ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, or whatever sauces you like. I liked mine just as they are.
