Chicken Nuggets

My 7 year old granddaughter helped me make these delicious golden brown Chicken Nuggets. Both of the kids loved them. I have to admit, they aren’t just for kids! They were so tender, moist and delicious. The best part of this recipe, besides the fabulous taste, is that the breading stayed on the chicken. We dipped them in BBQ sauce but they were so good you can eat them plain.

chicken on all sides until golden brown.

  1. We really love these little darlings! I always bring along some on our camping trips because they reheat in a skillet really quickly and easily. They absorb enough oil during cooking that there is no need for oil in the reheating process. Just reheat over a low heat in a heavy pan. I’ve also found that chicken “strips” are nice, too, and provide the same “crunch” with less surface of crumbs to absorb the cooking oil.

    If you have leftover seasoned flour and/or crumbs, you can put them into a plastic bag and keep them in the freezer for the next opportunity. If there is just a bit left over, then you can easily use it on some sliced zucchini or something as a side dish at another meal.

    I recently did this with eggplant that I sliced the long way. The pieces were large, and I had used two eggplants, so I baked them in the oven, and then put on some pasta sauce and cheese to heat/brown. A fabulous side dish! There were calls for the leftover eggplant every night. There were eight slices, so this covered the vegetable side for four meals. It kept in the refrigerator very well, and reheated satisfactorily.

    Virtual hugs,

  2. They look delicious – breading on meat or chicken is like bacon or chocolate … is there anyone who doesn’t enjoy a nice breaded veal cutlet, or pork chop. These sure don’t like the McNuggets from Mickey D’s!
