I was playing around in the kitchen and this is what I came up with, so I decided to share it with you. These nuggets go well with a sweet chili sauce. Enjoy!

Directions

  • Combine panko bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a food processor; blend until finely crushed. Put panko mixture in a bowl.

  • Whisk eggs and milk in a separate bowl to make an egg wash. Place flour in a bowl.

  • Coat chicken pieces in flour; dip them into egg wash. Press into panko mixture to coat, shaking off excess.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Fry chicken in batches, until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 3 to 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.

These are excellent! Once you try this recipe you will never be able to go back to eating frozen prepared nuggets again. On that note I wanted to share something helpful here. I had all of my chicken coated and was frying in batches when something came up. I stuck the ones I hadn't got to on a cookie sheet and put them in the freezer. The next night I pulled them out of the freezer to finish and they actually did better after being frozen. My point is that this would be an excellent recipe to make ahead and freeze for later use. If you decide to do that be sure to freeze them individually prior to combining them so that they don't stick together. Read More

Terrific recipe. Crispy crunchy delicious crust and very tender chicken. I'm not a frying fan so I baked these on a cookie sheet at 400 for about 10 minutes (I used chicken tenders). My grandkids (14 and 11) loved them as did their parents. And they're so easy! I think I'll be making these often. Read More

Really good! For our family of 4 (teens & adults) this recipe only served 4 not 8 because it is so yummy! I didn't need a whole cup of flour 3/4 cup or even less would have been more than enough. Perhaps my pieces were bigger than intended. I used 2 large eggs and it was barely enough so next time I'll use 3. For me 1 1/2 lbs. of chicken was 2 1/2 large chicken breasts. Some of us used ranch or honey mustard dressings for dipping. So yummy! Read More
