Best Homemade Chicken Nuggets

These Homemade Chicken Nuggets are out of the world. Moist in the inside and crunchy on the outside. These make quick starters when you have guests around. And I must tell you how much little A liked it. He is more of a fish lover than a chicken lover. But this time he just devoured these. These need very little ingredients and no marination time (but you can if you want to). 

Nuggets have breadcrumb coating. And for this recipe I actually coated the chicken with a mix of breadcrumb and crushed plain corn flakes for that extra crunch. I used Homemade Breadcrumbs, never really liked store bought ones. 

DO NOT confuse this with KFC chicken. Though it looks like one it is NOT KFC! 

You Will Need:
500g Boneless Chicken fillet
1/2 Cup of Thick Yogurt, Whisked
A tsp of Italian Seasoning 
Salt to Taste
Freshly Cracked Pepper to Season
Oil to Deep fry

For the Crumb Coating:
4 - 5 Bread Slices
A Cup of Cornflakes

The Cooking:

Cut the chicken into strips or cubes and pat dry. Mix the chicken with yogurt, seasoning, salt & pepper. Keep Aside. Its not mandatory to marinate the chicken. You can of course prepare this well ahead if you are serving guests later.

Place the bread and cornflakes in a food processor and blitz till fine. I actually crumbled the bread and crushed the cornflakes by hand. So to get a very rustic looking coating. You can do either whichever you like. Spread the crumb coating on a plate. Meanwhile heat oil to deep fry.

Now roll the chicken over the crumb coating one at a time. Make sure to gently press the chicken for an even coat. Shake off the excess and place it on a plate. Once the oil is hot deep fry in batches till the chicken is cooked through and crisp. Deep fry on medium heat to make sure the coating does not brown too soon.

Once done place the chicken on a kitchen paper to drain off the excess oil.Serve hot with a dip or just as it is. 

Happy Cooking!
