Homemade Chicken Nuggets Recipe
We love these chicken nuggets at our house! The recipe is easy to make and these also freeze well so you can make a double batch and freeze what you don’t eat. One batch makes around 25 chicken nuggets depending on how big you make them. Sometimes I form large round breaded chicken patties for sandwiches using this recipe as well!
I buy most of our chicken in bulk from Zaycon Fresh. If you are looking for a great source for bulk chicken and other meats (for a great price!), I highly recommend that you check them out. See my review of Zaycon here and find the latest Zaycon Fresh coupons here.
Homemade Chicken Nuggets
What you need:
- 1 egg
- 1 T mayo
- Small Onion
- 2 c. cooked chicken
- 1/4 c cheddar cheese
- 1 c bread crumbs
- salt to season
First I started by making my own bread crumbs I just stuck some old bread in the oven and baked it til it was crispy, then I ran it through my Magic Bullet blender to make it fine crumbs. I then added some garlic and onion salt to flavor. Put the cooked chicken and the onion in the food processor until the chicken is shredded (but not paste!).
Then add the mayo and egg and cheese to the processor and blend until mixed together. Form into lumps and coat with the bread crumbs. Bake at 400F for 18 or so minutes, turning halfway. I served mine with homemade bbq sauce and yummy mini apple pies.
