GROUND CHICKEN

  • Dry chicken breast with a kitchen towel. Cut each breast into small pieces. Then ground into a fine paste in a food processor. Skip this step if using finely ground chicken.

PREPARE BREADING STATION

  • In a bowl, whisk eggs, add salt and pepper to make egg wash. Take some bread crumbs on a large plate. Also, keep baking sheet or large trays to set prepared nuggets.

ROLL OUT NUGGETS

  • Grease hands with oil and roll out small from ground chicken mixture balls. Coat each ball with bread crumbs. This will make balls firm enough to handle.
  • Now shapes the balls into squares or circles with your hands. Dip each nugget in egg wash and then again in bread crumbs.

FRYING INSTRUCTIONS

  • For frying, throw few nuggets directly in hot oil. Do not crowd the wok and fry on medium heat for 2-3 minutes.  Then increase heat and fry for another 2 minutes until golden. Do not overcook, that will make the nuggets dry.
  • Take out on a kitchen towel and serve hot with any dip or ketchup.
