Chicken nuggets

By Food E Fare

Chicken nuggets are bite-sized, boneless pieces of chicken that are typically breaded and deep-fried or baked until they become golden brown and crispy. They are a popular and convenient finger food enjoyed by people of all ages, especially children. Here's a basic overview of how chicken nuggets are commonly made:


  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chicken meat
  • Breading mixture (flour, breadcrumbs, or a combination)
  • Seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic powder, etc.)
  • Eggs (for creating an egg wash)
  • Cooking oil (if frying)


Prepare the Chicken:

  • Cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chicken meat into bite-sized pieces.

Season the Chicken:

  • Season the chicken pieces with salt, pepper, and any other desired seasonings.

Prepare the Breading Station:

  • Set up a breading station with three bowls: one with flour, one with a beaten egg wash, and one with breadcrumbs or a mixture of breadcrumbs and flour.

Coat the Chicken:

  • Dip each piece of chicken into the flour, shaking off any excess. Then dip it into the egg wash, ensuring it is well-coated. Finally, coat it in the breadcrumbs, pressing them onto the chicken to adhere.

Repeat the Coating Process:

  • If you prefer a thicker coating, you can repeat the process by dipping the chicken back into the egg wash and breadcrumbs.

Fry or Bake:

  • If frying: Heat cooking oil in a pan or deep fryer to 350-375°F (175-190°C) and fry the breaded chicken pieces until golden brown and cooked through.
  • If baking: Preheat the oven to the temperature specified in the recipe and bake the breaded chicken pieces on a baking sheet until they are crispy and cooked through.


  • Once cooked, serve the chicken nuggets hot. They are often accompanied by dipping sauces such as ketchup, honey mustard, barbecue sauce, or ranch dressing.
