Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs (panko or regular)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Chicken: Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Aim for uniform sizes to ensure even cooking.
  2. Set Up Breading Station: Set up three bowls for breading the chicken:
  • Bowl 1: Combine the flour, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika.
  • Bowl 2: Beat the eggs with the milk.
  • Bowl 3: Combine the breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan cheese (if using).
  1. Bread the Chicken:
  • Dip each piece of chicken into the flour mixture, ensuring it is well coated. Shake off any excess flour.
  • Next, dip the floured chicken into the egg mixture, making sure it is completely covered.
  • Finally, coat the chicken in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere the breadcrumbs to the chicken.
  1. Heat the Oil: In a large skillet or deep fryer, heat vegetable oil to 350ยฐF (175ยฐC). Youโ€™ll need enough oil to submerge the chicken pieces.
  2. Fry the Nuggets: Carefully add the breaded chicken pieces to the hot oil in batches. Fry for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Ensure the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165ยฐF (74ยฐC).
  3. Drain and Serve: Remove the chicken nuggets from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauces.

Everyone will enjoy these tasty and entertaining homemade chicken nuggets. They’re excellent as a snack or for supper at parties. Savor the delicious, crunchy nuggets with peace of mind knowing exactly what’s in them. Serve them with your favorite dips, honey mustard, barbecue sauce, or ketchup. Have fun! ๐Ÿ—โœจ
