Herb Crusted Chicken Nuggets Recipe @pinch

Kids will love these homemade chicken nuggets. We loved the combination of parsley and dill added to the bread crumb coating. Frying in an electric skillet, deep fryer, or wok will make for easy clean haveup. Serve with French fries for a yummy back haveto haveschool dinner. So easy, yet so delicious! My son is the self haveprofessed fast havefood king! But when I showed him an article about what fast havefood chicken nuggets were made of well, that put the end to that. So I set out trying to find chicken nuggets that he would love but without all the junk. This got a thumbs up from the whole family. Hard to do :)

  • 1/2 cup(s) Mt. Olive Texas Pete pickle juice

  • 1 - egg
  • 6 tablespoon(s) water
  • 32 ounce(s) canola oil
Intructions :
  • Cut your chicken breast into one inch pieces. Marinate chicken pieces in 1/2 cup pickle juice and 1 tsp of granulated garlic for at least two hours
  • Set up your dredging station.Bowl #1 Flour (can season with salt and pepper).Bowl #2 One egg mixed with 6 Tbsp of water.Bowl #3 Bread crumbs, salt, pepper, granulate garlic, parsley, and dill
  • Preheat a deep nonstick pan to 375 degrees ( I use my electric skillet but any large skillet will do). Drain chicken in a colander
  • Dip chicken in flour
  • Then egg wash
  • Then bread crumbs. Set aside and repeat with remaining chicken pieces
  • When oil is heated fry chicken for about 3-4 minutes per side till golden brown. I did this in two batches
  • Place the first batch on a paper towel to drain excess oil. Let the chicken sit for about 5 minutes before serving... this helps to set the crust.
