A simple to prepare and no denying , a healthily delicious chicken nuggets ! ...any takers ? The first taker was Piggy Josh and followed by WB the hungry boar. I made these healthy nuggets when Piggy Josh came back last Christmas.
I added parmesan cheese to the potato starch and rice flour coating for extra oomph . The parmesan cheese truly adds a nice flavor to the bland flour and making the nuggets taste extra good ! The chicken breast cut into nugget pieces , must first be seasoned with a pinch of sea salt, dried mixed herbs and a dash of freshly ground black pepper and let the nuggets rest for at least 2 hours before coating them with the parmesan cheese flavored flour. Allow the coated nuggets to dry and make sure the coated flour is absorbed and stick on the surface of the nugget before baking them in the oven at 200C. I was impatient and did not actually wait for this important step ( have to make sure the nugget is aired through and the flour coating is absorbed into the nugget ) or after baking you can still see the white flour on the surface. Place the nuggets on raised rack with bottom tray lined with aluminium for easy cleaning. Once the oven is hot and hitting 200C temp. put the tray of nuggets in and bake for 30 mins or until both sides are brown and crispy. Serve with Nando's chilli sauce or Sriracha sauce...Yumm! Needless to say, the plate vamoosh in seconds LOL! I helped myself to a few pieces too.. reason being this is healthy cooking !
seasoned nuggets with olive oil, dried mixed herbs, grounded black pepper, a pinch of sea salt
leave to marinade for at least 2 hours before coating with the cheese flavor flour
leave to air until the flour is absorbed into the surface of the nuggets
this is the most important part or the nuggets will have
the white flour sticking to it.
place on wire rack with a bottom tray lined with aluminium foil
so that any oil dripping can be collected and also
for easy cleaning :)
serve this with Sriracha sauce or Nando's hot chilli sauce
Yumm yumm yummy!
