Chicken Nuggets

Yield: 3 Servings


  • 250 gm chopped chicken
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • salt as required
  • ½ cup refined oil
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ medium chopped onion
  • ½ teaspoon garlic paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon powdered black pepper


Step 1 Marinate the chicken for an hour
Chicken Nuggets is a simple and delectable appetizer recipe and can be made at home very easily. Here’s a simple way of preparing this non-veg starter recipe by following a few simple steps. Take a glass bowl and add chicken, garlic paste, onion, pepper and salt in it. Mix all the ingredients well. Once done, mince the mixture and refrigerate it for around 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Step 2 Prepare the nuggets using beaten egg, flour and breadcrumbs
Now, take another bowl and beat the egg in it. Keep aside till further use. Then take small portions of the minced mixture and prepare small nuggets of the same. Coat these nuggets with flour and then dip into the beaten egg mixture. Then, coat with breadcrumbs and arrange it in a plate till further use.

Step 3 Deep fry the coated chicken nuggets and serve hot
Meanwhile, heat oil in a frying pan over medium flame. Once the oil is sufficiently hot, add nuggets and fry them for 2 mins on both sides. Fry the bite-sized delights till they turn golden brown in colour. Once done, transfer the nuggets over a napkin so that the excess oil is absorbed. Serve hot with ketchup or mint chutney.
