Easy Homemade Chicken Nuggets

 Easy Homemade Chicken Nuggets

We are all in search of the best recipes when it comes to pack lunch for kids. I completely detest the frozen chicken Nuggets that come in the supermarkets, as we do not know what all goes into it. So I try and make these ahead of time, super easy to make too. I made the chicken Nuggets with hormone free boneless chicken cubes.
The addition of mayonnaise helps the chicken to tenderize and makes the Nuggets even more delicious. Make these Nuggets ahead of time (during the weekend) and your kids are going to love their lunch time. And for us mommies, we can feel guilt free too. I served the Nuggets on lettuce, you may place them inside bread slices as a sandwich or however you desire. 
Chicken Nuggets are loved by kids worldwide. So I am sure your kids will love them! It is always a hit here. To bring in the right coating texture I used 3 different ingredients to bring out the texture, I used plain cornflakes, rolled oats and a little amount of bread crumbs. Do try and let me know how your kids liked them!

Ingredients : (makes 12 Nuggets)

  1. In a food processor, pulse boneless chicken cubes with mayonnaise , garlic powder, paprika powder, white pepper powder, and dried parsley. Pulse and check the consistency, if required add a couple of tablespoons of bread crumbs and pulse once again. (make sure not make a paste)
  2. Onto a parchment paper/ baking paper add the chicken mixture and with the help of oiled hands flatten using using your fingers and shape the nugget mixture to a neat square, cover using the overlying baking paper from all sides and store in the freezer for around 20-30 minutes, this step will help you slice the chicken nugget block into perfect sized Nuggets.
  3. Remove the nugget block from the freezer and using a sharp and oiled knife, cut the chicken nugget block into equal sized nuggets.

  4. In a dry grinder, pulse cornflakes, rolled oats and bread or bread crumbs.

  5. Now dip the nugget into beaten eggs and then dip in the flour and repeat the process, now dip in egg again and coat in the cornflake mix. 

  6. In a freezer safe container place the prepared Nuggets using a baking paper before placing another layer of nuggets, or immediately fry for 3-4 minutes each side on medium flame.

  7. Serve with ketchup or any of your favorite dips.
