  • Start by cutting the chicken fillet into medium-sized strips, then combine them in a bowl with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • In a bowl, whisk all the batter ingredients, and prepare another bowl with flour. Dip the chicken strips in the batter, ensuring they are well coated.
  • Heat a deep pan with oil to a temperature between 350-375°F.
  • Prepare a bowl with flour for coating. Take each chicken strip, shake off excess batter, and coat it with the flour. Fry until golden brown, then remove to a cooling rack.

How long should I fry the chicken nuggets to achieve golden perfection?

Frying the chicken nuggets to achieve golden perfection typically takes about 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the strips. Ensure the oil is preheated to around 350°F (175°C). The key is to achieve a crispy and golden exterior while ensuring the chicken is thoroughly cooked. Keep a close eye and adjust the frying time accordingly, as variations may occur based on your stove, pan, and specific size of the chicken strips.

How to bake homemade battered chicken nuggets

Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Place the coated chicken strips on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, turning halfway through, until the nuggets are golden and cooked through.

What side dishes pair well with these battered chicken nuggets?

Consider serving them on a bed of rice or with a fresh garden salad for a refreshing contrast. Steamed or roasted vegetables, such as broccoli or carrot sticks, enhance the meal’s nutritional value. Classic choices like French fries or sweet potato wedges add a satisfying crunch. For a lighter option, opt for a side of coleslaw or a fruit salad.
