What kid doesn't like chicken nuggets? This is one dish I do believe my 9 year old will never tire of. So I do my best to make a homemade version.
Here is what we call "Grandma's Chicken" since the original recipe came from my mom.
You will need..
1 pound of boneless chicken (I use breast meat but dark meat works great)
A few tablespoons of olive oil (canola or any oil will work)
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 wheat germ
1 or 2 garlic cloves
Cut the chicken in nugget size pieces
Scramble the eggs with milk in a bowl
Put dry ingredients in a bowl
Heat up a frying pan on medium/high heat
Add the oil when pan is hot
Put chicken in the egg mixture
Put chicken in the dry ingredients
Put chicken in the frying pan & add garlic (I smash the garlic but keep it whole. If you don't like garlic seasoning your oil, skip it)
Cook chicken till brown on one side then flip it (usually takes a few 3-5 minutes on each side depending on the size of your nuggets)
Take chicken out when fully cooked and place on a rack so the extra oil drips off.
~You can garnish it with parsley or Parmesan cheese. Just about anything goes with this recipe.
~If you prefer not to fry it in oil, you can bake it in the oven for a healthier version.
My kids like to dip it in some of my homemade marinara sauce but this chicken will go with just about any dipping sauce.
I like to make extra and keep some in the freezer for those busy days.
I came across this website from a mom blogger and thought it might be a good one to share..
