Homemade Chicken Nuggets

homemade chicken nuggets

There are so many reasons I love homemade chicken nuggets!

  1. They use up any leftover chicken from our roast dinner.
  2. You know exactly what goes into them.
  3. The kids love getting messy whilst they help make them.
  4. The kids actually eat them all!

I use the cooked leg meat and any leftovers from our roast chicken but you can which ever part of the chicken you prefer.

Makes 12-16


For the nuggets:

Meat from 2 large chicken legs, shreaded

1 egg, whisked

2 tbsp plain flour

60ml chicken stock

Salt and pepper to taste

For the breading:

200g plain flour

Bread crumbs from 2 slices of bread

2 eggs, whisked

2 tsp turmeric (optional, but it gives the breading its golden colour)

Oil for frying

  1. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the nuggets together. Scoop one tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball, flatten a little. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
  2. With each nugget, roll in flour so it is evenly coated, dunk into the whisked egg and then roll into the bread crumbs until it is completely covered.
  3. Shallow fry the chicken nuggets in a large frying pan for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
