Did you think I had skills? Here’s a chicken nugget recipe.


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Cooking oil (vegetable or canola) for frying


  1. Prepare a Dredging Station: Set up a dredging station with three shallow bowls. In the first bowl, place the flour. In the second bowl, whisk the eggs until well-beaten. In the third bowl, combine the panko breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Mix well.
  2. Coat the Chicken: Take a piece of chicken and coat it in the flour, shaking off any excess. Then dip it into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off. Finally, coat the chicken piece thoroughly in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to ensure the crumbs adhere. Place the coated nuggets on a baking sheet.
  3. Heat the Oil: In a large skillet or deep fryer, heat about 1 inch of cooking oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350-375°F (175-190°C).
  4. Fry the Nuggets: Carefully add a few chicken nuggets to the hot oil using tongs. Be cautious not to overcrowd the pan, as it can lower the oil temperature. Fry the nuggets for about 3-4 minutes per side or until they are golden brown and cooked through. You may need to adjust the cooking time based on the thickness of your nuggets. Transfer the cooked nuggets to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
  5. Serve: Serve your prime chicken nuggets hot with your favorite dipping sauces, such as ketchup, honey mustard, or barbecue sauce.

Enjoy your homemade prime chicken nuggets! You can customize the seasonings and dipping sauces to suit your taste preferences.
