After watching a programme on the making of chicken products, I swore never to buy processed chicken again. A problem when my kids love nuggets. I searched for a recipe and found this one in Simply Delicious. My kids love it, and their friends request it whenever they come here. Tasty, simple and easy, I can't help but wonder why I ever bothered buying it ready made before. I've made this with and without mint. Add another 30 mins chilling time to the timing.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cut chicken breasts into 4 cm (2in) cubes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together breadcrumbs, sesame seeds, mint, paprika, salt and pepper until thoroughly combined.
  3. Coat chicken nuggets first in beaten egg and then in breadcrumb mixture. Put on a baking sheet and chill for 30 minutes Heat oil in a frying pan and fry nuggets for 10 mins, turning occasionally until golden and crispy.
  4. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper before serving.
  5. Recipe suggests serving with tartar sauce. My kids grabbed a bottle of Heinz tomato sauce.
  6. Tip: chilling the chicken once it is coated in breadcrumbs makes the mixture less likely to fall off during frying. (So says the recipe!).
