To make homemade nuggets, take a chicken breast, chicken eggs, any kind of wheat flour, breadcrumbs, refined vegetable oil, dried granulated garlic, salt, ground black pepper. In addition, you can use any seasoning you like.

So, slice the chicken breast (skinless and boneless, naturally) into fairly large and not thin slices. Well, you can probably imagine what cooked chicken nuggets look like.

Now just vigorously scramble them with a fork to break up the stringy texture of the protein
Now just shake them vigorously with a fork to break up the stringy texture of the protein. If you like, you can beat the eggs with a mixer or whisk - it's even better.

Let's prepare first breading - it will be wheat flour of any kind, dried garlic (or any other seasonings to your taste), salt and ground black pepper. Stir everything.
In another bowl, pour the breadcrumbs - I have homemade breadcrumbs, of course ([recipe available here](/recipe/domashnie-panirovochnye-suhari))

Now we bread the chicken filet.
So, breading the chicken fillets. First, roll each piece in flour mixture, shaking off the excess.
Then put meat in chicken eggs, so that they completely envelope the pieces
After that, place the meat in the chicken eggs so they completely coat the pieces.
Then coat chicken filet in breadcrumbs.
And immediately roll the chicken fillet in breadcrumbs.
Bread all chicken pieces this way, carefully remove extra breadcrumbs, to prevent them from crumbling and burning in the oil
We baste all pieces of chicken in this way, carefully removing extra breadcrumbs, so that they do not fall off and do not burn in oil. By the way, you can freeze such a preparation on a tray, then, as the pieces get frozen, put them in a bag and cook them as needed.
To fry the chicken nuggets, we'll need a decent amount of refined vegetable oil (I have sunflower oil)
To fry the chicken nuggets, we need a decent amount of refined vegetable oil (I'm using sunflower oil). We pour it into a saucepan that is big enough (a narrow and high one is better, in order to use less oil), and heat it up well. When oil is hot enough, let's put patted meat pieces in it. Do not put a lot at once, for nuggets to be cooked evenly. We fry on medium heat until crusty, about 5 minutes. But I won't tell you the exact time here, if only because I don't know how big your meat pieces will be and what the temperature of the oil is.
Place the finished golden chicken nuggets on paper towels or a towel to soak up the excess oil
Place the finished golden chicken nuggets on paper towels or paper towels to soak up the excess oil. Then, similarly deep-fry the rest of the breaded chicken pieces.
Serve this simple but very tasty appetizer hot, although I personally like chicken nuggets cold as well
