Chicken nuggets – Indian style

Chicken nuggets – Indian style

Chicken nuggets Indian style

My kids love chicken nuggets, the husband as well. I mean they are pure golden goodness and yummy too. Though earlier, we tried making the frozen stuff from the bag, these days, I prefer to make them myself at home. You know they are not difficult to make or time consuming either. And, I prefer consuming fresh food. Needless to mention that it’s always very healthy and hygienic. It is tastier too. So here is my simple recipe of chicken nuggets with an Indian tadka.

Ingredients:

500 gm. boneless chicken breast cut into pieces

1 tsp. black pepper powder

Some chopped coriander

Marinade:

¼ cup buttermilk

1 tsp. chilly powder

2 tsp. ginger garlic paste

Salt to taste

For the nuggets shell:

1 cup breadcrumbs

¼ cup flour

1 egg

Recipe:

Marinate your boneless chicken pieces in the marinade ingredients for at least 4 hours. Overnight is even better.  Now drain out the liquid well. Make sure the pieces are almost dry.

Add some chopped coriander, ½ tsp. black pepper and chicken pieces and mince it in your food processor. The mince must be nice and moist but not runny. I always enjoy mincing it in my Morphy Richards Food Processor.

Now to assemble, take your breadcrumbs in a plate.  I make my own breadcrumbs by throwing in a couple of slices of  bread in the blender. Just blend a little and you have great quality breadcrumbs. Season with some salt and pepper. But keep it less as the chicken already has its own salt and spices.

Take flour in a plate and whip the egg in another bowl.

Now using your hands, form the chicken mince in the shape of nuggets. Dip them gently in flour first, then in egg mix and in bread crumbs. Make all the nuggets in this manner.

Now either shallow fry on each side in a pan or deep fry them in hot oil. They are done in a few minutes. Take them out when golden brown and serve hot with the chutney of your choice.

This is a great recipe as a snack in the evening.

  1. Love the sound of this.
    And I’m sure if I made this, these would be the only nuggets everybody in the house would ever want.

    I think I’ll be coming back to this post, soon. 😉

  2. I know, I’m gonna love this. Only one little question. You mentioned chopped coriander. Are you talking about coriander leaves or seeds? I guess, leaves. 🙂

      1. HI!!!

        MAIN HAR KHISAM KE COOK MAKE KARTI HOON AAPKA CHICKEN NUGGETS VERY EASY HAI MAINE BANAYA VERY TESTY THA, THANK YOU.

  3. My blender doesn’t mince chicken. So I have to depend on store bought mince meat (which is hard to find here). 🙁 Does yours specifically mention that it can be used to mince meat?

    1. It is a Food Processor. It can do a lot of things including mincing. 🙂 But you can use a blender too. It shouldn’t be an issue or buy good quality mince from the market. Come on, cheer up. 🙂

  4. Have always have had readymade chicken nuggets. Your recipe sounds simple and great. Will share it with KG, non-veg cooking falls under his domain skills 🙂

  5. Hi.. your recipe is indeed quiet tempting. Please can you tell me the solution if the mince turns out runny?? And what’s the procedure if we want to make in airfryer??

  6. Yummy! This is very easy n looks delicious. I make kids friendly chicken kebab which are bit similar to this. I will try your recipe soon. Thanks for sharing.
