Salam...Kia Ora,

Definitely got no idea what to cook for dinner just now.  Opened the freezer, not much left in there as it's my groceries day tomorrow.  The emptier the better, bcos I need the storage space for our 2 weeks supplies of halal produce. 

I normally stock up 2 weeks supplies of meats, chickens, sausages and chicken luncheon because I couldn't be bothered to drive all the way to Hamilton, which is abt 45 mins away from where I live.  As for fish, I will just buy them fresh from the supermarket here.  Sometimes, we get free fishes from hb's work mates who luvs to go fishing during their days off. ;)  

Anyway, I decided to make some chicken nuggets as there's a pack of chicken fillet and I'm missing McDonald's chicken nuggets at the same time.  Not that I can't buy frozen halal ones, but they taste disgusting :( I wonder why the frozen nuggets are grayish in colour...yucks!!!  This nuggets recipe is so far the best that I've ever tried...will definitely use this recipe again next time.  The softest chicken nuggets I've ever made, its definitely white just like McD's nuggets...the only thing that is missing is McD's curry sauce...and errmmm chicken beaks, heads, feathers, bon bon and any other parts that I can't think of...wahahahaz!!

 Hb said we should call them luvgets instead of nuggets...hehehez :D Those ones in the basket are supposed to be :-
Butterflies, the ones on the left and penguins, the ones on the right.  They certainly look no where near to what I've decribed them to be after I coated them with breadcrumbs...hehehez :D

Ingredients :
  • 500gm Boneless & Skinless Chicken Breast Fillet or Minced Chicken (I used chicken breast fillet)
  • 3 tblsp Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Egg (Beaten)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Enough Oil For Deep Frying
Method :
  • If using chicken breast fillet, cut into chunks and process in a food processor until fine.  Otherwise skip this step.
  • In a large bowl, transfer the processed minced chicken.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients above and mix thoroughly.
  • Shape the nuggets to your liking.
Coating :
  • Flour
  • Beaten Eggs
  • Bread crumbs
Method :
  • Firstly, coat the nuggets with flour, then dip it in the beaten eggs and lastly coat it with breadcrumbs.
  • Repeat the above step if you like thicker coating.  (I only did it once)
  • Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown and serve with your favourite dipping sauce.

Enjoy the rest of the week everyone....

Me Te Aroha...With Love,
Anie ;)
