Homemade Chicken Nuggets
By Debbie; I think every parent has to deal with their children suddenly stopping eating overnight. Don't like, don't want, don't need and no way you can get a bite in. Well, what do you do then? I always try to make something that they like even if it is only one part of the meal.
You still want them to get something in. And no, I don't put French fries, pizza or pancakes on the table every day. 😉
The big yellow M
But what then? Ask kids where they want to eat and the big yellow M soon comes up. And what do they eat there? Usually fries with chicken nuggets. I regularly get asked when we will eat there again and then I think: well, next year sometime.
There was a period when I loved it too but those few times a year when they are allowed a Happy Meal now, we drive past the Mcdrive and I make a quick pasta for us at home. We do eat (oven) fries regularly so they have nothing to complain about there. To satisfy their Mc wish, I sometimes make chicken nuggets. These are a lot healthier and tastier.
Luckily, they're not hard to make at all either, try as they might!
Homemade Chicken Nuggets;
What you need?
For 4 people;
- 300 grams of chicken breast
- breadcrumbs or breadcrumbs
- 1 egg
- 100 grams of flour
- salt and pepper
- olive oil
How to make?
- Cut the chicken breast into chicken nugget-sized pieces.
- Take 3 deep plates: in one you put the flour, in the other you beat the egg and the last you fill with breadcrumbs.
- Sprinkle the chicken breast with salt, pepper and paprika.
- Pass each piece successively through the flour, egg and breadcrumbs.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet and fry the nuggets for 10 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
- You can also cook the chicken nuggets in the Airfryer, oven or fryer.
Airfryer: 8 minutes at 180 degrees without oil.
Oven: 12-15 minutes at 180 degrees. Drizzle the nuggets with a little oil before they go into the oven. Deep fryer: 6 minutes at 180 degrees
- Serve the chicken nuggets immediately. Great with a salad and fries but also as a snack at the movies.
Do your kids like chicken nuggets too??
