Chicken Nuggets Made at Home

Do your kids like chicken nuggets? Your kids are gonna love this!! The recipe is flavorful, crunchy, crispy, yummy, scrumptious...need I go on!!!

Ummm, I am getting hungry again just looking at these babies!

Gather your Ingredients:

5-7 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cups flour
1 T. salt
1 t. pepper
1 t. cayenne pepper (these are not spicy at all with this in it)
1 t. paprika
1 T. garlic powder
1 T. onion powder
1 T. Tony's Creole Cajun Seasoning
1 t. season salt
1 t. seasoned meat tenderizer

3 cups milk
3 eggs

Oil for frying- heat to 350 degrees in dutch oven or electric skillet.

How to Make The Magic Happen:

1. Trim off any fat and cube your chicken into bite size chunks.

2. Mix all dry ingredients into a large bowl.
3. Place milk and eggs into another large bowl.
4. Dredge chicken in egg wash.

5. Flour chicken.
6. Re-dredge in egg wash.

7. Flour chicken again.
8. Fry for 5-7 minutes.

This was so simple!

The whole process took me about 40 minutes from start to finish!
Not to shabby!

A little tip on what I used for oil- and I can see the cringes now....

I used lard and bacon grease that I saved....yes, I know. 
I can see the faces!! 
But it was so yummy!!!!

I never said this was a "light" meal, or healthy...

    1. You are welcome! Yes, they make me hungry looking at them too!

  3. These look so delicious and seem much healthier than the frozen ones I usually buy. I can't wait to try making them :)

  4. I should make these and keep frozen. I use popcorn chicken in my salads (frozen section). These would be soooo much better!!

    Pinning it!
