I love chicken nuggets, what I don't love is what is in chicken nuggets. So to feed my craving I will make a large batch and freeze what I don't eat, so I always have some on hand.
Homemade Chicken Nuggets
1 pound chicken, cut into bite size pieces
1 cup of all purpose flour
Salt and Pepper
1 egg and 1/4 cup of grape seed oil
2 cups of panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup of grape seed oil for frying
Cut chicken into bite size pieces. Place and combine flour, salt and pepper, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl whisk eggs, hot sauce (not for spice just for flavor) and 1/4 cup of oil together. In a third shallow bowl place bread crumbs.
Dredge the chicken through the flour. Then cover them with the egg mixture and then cover them throughly with bread crumbs. I split the chicken up in thirds and coated in batches. Heat the oil over medium-high heat and fry first batch until golden brown on both sides. Each side will take about 5 minutes. When you see the edges become brown they are ready to be flipped. Finish all three batches and enjoy!
