4) Heat oil in a non stick fry pan.  Cook nuggets on a low-medium heat (about 4 minutes each side) until golden brown.

I don’t mind serving these with some sauce & fries because I know there are veggies in there too!

Chicken Nuggets

Notes:

I don’t use much oil, but the nuggets come out nice & crispy.  You can even use Cornflakes crumbs instead of breadcrumbs, to add extra crunch.

This recipe make quite a lot of nuggets, so I freeze mine.  They’re still crispy even when re-heated in the microwave.

Freezing the nuggets under layers of baking paper mean they don’t stick together & get icy.

Once frozen, store nuggets in a zip lock bag to save space in your freezer.
