Golden Chicken Nuggets
These chicken nuggets are tender and juicy on the inside but crispy on the outside. Each bite is so flavourful that you'll find it difficult to resist grabbing another one.

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour (additional for coating)

4. Pour the oil into a medium sized sauce pan. Heat the oil over medium high heat up to 350-375 degrees F (180-190 degrees C). You can check that the oil is hot enough by dropping a few drops of the batter into it. It should start bubbling immediately. DO NOT check it with water, if you pour water on the oil, the mixture can explode!
5. Dip each chicken piece in the batter and place accurately in oil. Don't overcrowd the pan, leave enough space around each piece so the chicken will cook evenly.

6. Deep fry the chicken nuggets for about 10 minutes, until they are golden brown.
7. Remove the chicken from oil and place on paper towel to drain off the excess oil.
