Homemade McDonald’s Style Chicken Nuggets

These homemade chicken nuggets had the right texture, flavor and consistency of a standard McDonald’s Chicken McNugget.

Introduction

McDonald’s style Chicken nuggets

Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

2 boneless skinless Chicken Breasts (that’s 4 breast fillets)
1 teaspoon of Salt
1/2 teaspoon of Parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon of Oregano
1/4 teaspoon of Onion powder
1/4 teaspoon of Pepper
2 Eggs, beaten
1 Cup of Flour
about 1.5 Cups of Oil for frying (I used Sunflower seed oil)

Directions

eat oil in a heavy-duty skillet (like a cast iron skillet) on medium-high heat while preparing the chicken nuggets – it should be ready to work with once half of your nuggets are ready to go in.

Cube chicken and place in a food processor. Blend chicken until it has all been taken apart and is a fine paste. Remove to a bowl and add salt, parsley, oregano, onion powder, and pepper, and combine well.

Pour out flour on a plate and have your beaten eggs in a small bowl ready to work with.

Roll the chicken paste mixture into 34 ping-pong ball-sized balls (smaller than a golf ball).

Roll a “chicken ball” in flour, then in egg, and then in flour again. Then, press the ball down to make a nugget. Set nuggets aside.

Sprinkle the hot oil with some flour and if it bubbles really quickly right away, your oil is ready for frying. Place as many nuggets as possible in the oil, and fry until the bottoms are golden, turn and fry until the other side is golden. Will take about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove to a towel-lined plate (to catch any excess oil).

Serve with honey of honey mustard (1 Tablespoon of honey + 1 teaspoon of mustard) or spicy honey mustard (1 Tablespoon of honey + 1 teaspoon of mustard + a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce) or catchup or ranch dressing – get the idea, just use your favorite condiment(s).

Makes about 34 nuggets. About 5-6 piece servings.

Number of Servings: 5
