Homemade Chicken Nuggets
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 30
  • 2.5 lbs chicken (about 4 medium chicken breasts)
  • 1½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ½ parsley flakes
  • ¼ cayenne powder
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup peanut oil (this is what I used but use whatever you like)
  1. Place chicken, 1 teaspoon salt, onion powder, oregano, parsley, and cayenne powder in food processor and  process until ground and pasty.
  2. Combine flour with ½ teaspoon salt in a medium bowl and beaten eggs in a separate medium bowl.
  3. Take a heaping tablespoon or small cookie scoop of the chicken paste and roll into a small ball then flatten slightly. Dip in egg then into flour and set aside. Repeat with the rest of the chicken paste mixture until it is gone. I recommend finishing this step before you start frying.
  4. Heat oil in frying pan. I used a deeper pan but any frying pan would work. When the oil is hot enough (sizzles when you drop a little flour in there) place some of the nuggets in without overcrowding. Fry on both sides for about 4-5 minutes, until browned, and cooked through.
