Healthier and tastier breading for chicken

We can make different dishes with different breaded chicken pieces but certainly, chicken nuggets are favorite of many people.
These little titbits are tender inside and crunchy outside, so no one can’t resist.

These little pieces of breading chicken are delicious but we usually eat and buy them at fast food restaurants and supermarkets.
And this is a big mistake. At first sight, we think nuggets are made of tender breast chicken, but nothing could be more untrue.
At most famous fast food restaurants, nuggets are made as hot dogs; that means a mixture of meat with skin, blood vessels, gristle… In other words, processed foods with a big quantity of fat.

Nuggets from supermarket are not better. If we read the nutrition facts label and ingredients, we will see that they only contains 30% of breast chicken and a high amount of additives and salt.
But that is not all, nuggets always have a lower protein percent than their fat percent.

So, if we want to eat real nuggets of breast chicken and obviously without unhealthy additives, the best idea is make our own breading for chicken.
We promise that these homemade chicken nuggets are more crunchy and tastes much better than nuggets from fast food restaurants and supermarkets.
Don’t you worry about difficulty or time, we ensure that this is an easy and quick recipe, and you could enjoy of the best breading for chicken you have ever tasted.

Nuggets recipe

  • Ingredients:
  • ½ kg chicken breast
  • 1 Crunchy Crumbs package
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Garlic and onion powder

First, we have to cut the chicken breast into small pieces. After we sprinkle it with the salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.
Then we coat each nugget with Crunchy Crumbs. We have to heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat (around 180º is perfect). So we can fry our nuggets.
If all the nuggets don’t fit in the skillet, it is better to fry many batches. We will cook them until they are golden brown on each side. We will use a spatula to place the nuggets on paper towels to drain.
Et voilà! We will have perfect breaded nuggets.

*We can add other spices or seasonings before breading as curry or paprika if we want different flavors.
