A family favorite! I use milk in place of water; eliminated sesame seeds, and added garlic powder and pepper. I fried these up in a skillet on medium high heat. They cook very quickly. This dish also fries up nicely without the egg/milk batter - just coated in flour and seasonings. Grandkids love them with a little honey-barbeque sauce to dip.Read More
This is the first time I'm rating something with one star, ever. I'm very sorry to say that these were the worst chicken nuggets I've ever eaten. They couldn't crisp up (I use a fry thermometer so I know it wasn't the temperature), the batter was disappointingly thin, and they were virtually flavorless. I can't believe something fried could be such a disaster. I reread the recipe over and over again to see if I missed something or did something wrong - I followed this recipe to a "t". I'm guessing it's the water that didn't work out. I'm going to stick with flour/eggs/breadcrumbs from now on.Read More

WOW- much better than I anticipated- although next time I will reduce the salt. The batter looked too thin to me, but actually came out great. Almost reminded me of fish & chips batter. I think they would be better with a little seasoning like onion/garlic powder. Used an electric skillet with about an inch of corn oil. Thanks for submitting!
Great recipe! Tastes like something you'd eat in a restaurant. I will definitely make this again. Thanks a bunch for the yummy recipe!!
As a beginner cook this is my 3rd recipe for chicken and it turned out very tasty...although i didnt have sesame seeds and used a deep fryer at 375, the chicken was moist and still had a crispy flavorful crust...i recommend highly especially for kids/students
These are amazing. I have never had any luck with frying meats before, the always come out greasy and mushy, or not cooked thoroughly. I was really surprised with these nuggets. The batter is very easy and light enough that it doesn't make you feel overly full when you've finished your meal. I did add some adobo powder, seasoning salt, onion powder and garlic powder to the chicken before coating.
My kids absolutely loved this recipe. They're always wanting seconds and thirds. Thanks!!
i'm sorry i didn't rate this sooner. it became an instant classic. i love it like one of my own :)
SO easy to make!! And VERY tasty!
I am happy to have found this recipe. It is a good basic recipe to start with. You can mix it up by adding extra spices and using your imagination. I used that masa corn flour stuff in place of the flour. I did not use the seeds either. The results were good and my kids ask for more. Dont expect it to be clean cut looking like mcdonalds chicken mcnuggets, the breading will not look like that but that is ok because it is homemade instead of being a store/resturant made unhealthy food item.
I made these last year and I forgot to rate it:) I liked them and I thought that the sesames added a nice touch to the nuggets. My husband also liked them too:) Thanks for sharing:)
My 11-year-old step-daughter said these were delicious. She ate them with ketchup of course. They were very easy, quick and good. I made them without the seeds and added garlic powder to the chicken before dipping. They were really good! Will make them again! Thanks!
Very Delicious and easy! I am gluten free so I substituted brown rice flour for all purpose flour and added about 1/8 C arrowroot powder to thicken. I also added garlic powder and pepper! This was my first time making chicken fingers and the batter worked great!
These were the best !!!! I doubled the recipe and it made just enough batter for my family of five. The only change I made was to cut the salt in half.
I have been making these chicken nuggets exactly this way for over 20 years ever since I clipped it out of a magazine when it won an an Accent Tenderizer recipe contest. I use toasted sesame seeds, plain sesame seeds and throw in a few black sesame seeds as well. Everyone loves these when I make them. In fact, I took some leftover to work today for lunch. They make a great cold snack as well!
I love these! I take my son out almost every other day for chicken nuggets and now I can just make them right at home. Thanks for the recipe, it will make my life a little easier.
The nuggets were easy to make and delicious. I used them to supplement a frozen oriental meal, that never seems to have enough meat. I used chicken tenders and skipped the sesame seeds, because that's what I had on hand. I will make this recipe again and again-thanks!
Left out the sesame seeds. My family loved it. This will be on the menu quite often
These are so good. And to all those people skipping the sesame seeds?? That's what makes these different and better than your average chicken nugget. And to this person who said They took a lot longer than 4 minutes, more like 30 minutes per batch and they came out way too dry....Cooking them for 30 minutes is the reason they were so dry. ????:
Not bad. Was looking for something more flavorful. Wouldn't make the sauce again...just tasted like mayo. Chicken came out nice and tender though.
They took a lot longer than 4 minutes, more like 30 minutes per batch and they came out way too dry. Plus, all I could taste was the corn oil and I only used a little. I tried to bake some of them - BAD IDEA. I won't be making these again.
I followed the recipe almost exactly except that I used buttermilk. My husband doesn't want any other kind of chicken nuggets from now on. And my "I will only eat cereal" 4 year old ate his too - a miracle!
I was impressed at how tender the chicken was after cooking it this way but the batter didn't stay on very well. I added some breadcrumbs for a better batter in addition to some seasoning (salt, pepper, onion, garlic). It was good but nothing special and probably would have come out just as tasty and more healthy if baked.
I absolutely loved how this recipe turned out when I used it for my foods and nutrition class
this is great, i tried it at school for my home ec grade and i got an A my teacher loved it.. this receipe is just delicious and awesome.. i love it
Awesome, really liked the sesame seeds!
I have been making this recipe for years. I change it up most times; personally I like adding more sesame seeds, but you may be different. But my son has eaten these since he was 3 years old, and he is normally very picky.
I didn't have any sesame seeds, so I used Montery chicken spice and it was very good.
I had a craving for chicken nuggets and went searching for a recipe. very easy to make! the nuggets didn't stay crispy for long tho. About 30 seconds after coming out of the fryer they went soft, but I think that's okay.
Easy And Delicious What more Could you want?
Very good but kind of messy to make - I enjoyed them very much. :)
I added my usual onion and garlic powders, black pepper and a good half cup of sesame seeds. Kids loved them. Thanks Megami!
1 word ... delicious
These were pretty good. The dough tasted a bit plain. but overall, it's worth a second try.
This is delightful! My incredibally picky siblings eat these like candy. They taste great!
This is great.I now use this one on a regular basis. Thanks Megami
A first I was a little disappointed. I had expected the nuggets to be crunchier; more like a traditional chicken nugget. I tried one, and thought they were ok, but a little bland. I made a quick “orange sauce” in the microwave (2tbsps of orange marmalade, 2 tsp of rice wine vinegar and 1tsp of honey), and then tossed the chicken with the sauce…they were FANTASTIC!
This was a good starter recipe, I changed it up a little I had 3 chicken breasts that must have been much bigger than the ones they used in this recipe. I had to double the recipe twice to do the three breasts that I had, I used 2 tsp of season salt per 2/3 cup of flour, 2/3 cup of water, and 2 eggs. I also put cut chicken in a zip lock bag of plain flour before dipping it in the batter. I used a large frying pan with about 1/4" of olive oil it worked great and the nuggets turned out great.
All the recipes I have ever tried on this website have been excellent. Unfortunately, this is the very first one I didn't like. I would try it again perhaps with no egg. My Husband and his Father needed dinner so I tried this recipe hoping it would be masculinly satisfying. The addition of the egg simply overpowered any spice I had attempted to add the the recipe.
These were good - my family enjoyed them. I sprinkled some garlic powder and cumin to the chicken and let it sit for about an hour before dredging it in the batter. I just did it in a skillet, since I don't have a deep fryer, and they weren't real crispy, but good. I'll make again.
Needs a little bit more spice, but very good! 2 year old ate them :)
What an easy, tasty recipe. My husband loved it; I was only trying to please the kids and pleased both my finicky eating husband as well as my picky children! The batter is not gooey and messy like the other ones I have tried. This is definitely a "save to recipe" one for me!
Excellent! Make plenty because they'll be snapped up fast. Very easy to make. I don't care to fry my foods, but this recipe is so good I made an exception -- and it does not taste greasy. I put in more sesame seeds than the recipe called for, because I enjoy them. Just misses being a 5-star recipe (which I reserve for those absolutely blow-away, incredible and unique dishes). But 4-stars tops most other recipes, so this is a winner!
Excellent recipe. My family is picky when it comes to chicken, nuggets especially and they all loved this recipe. I like it because it's easy :) Thanks
these were awesome chicken nuggets. I decided to make them for my 2-1/2 yo daughter and 1 yo son. They have just eatten them up. I did several things different: added extra sesame seeds (toasted), added a crumbled ritz cracker or two (added a nice buttery flavor it was lacking), and I deep fried them. Oh my goodness.....my daughter loves McNuggets and she loved these....one suggestion, if you cut them into smaller pieces and deep fry them they come out like popcorn chicken!!
I thought these were pretty good. My kids loved them. I did use more seeds than called for as well.
Very good - the fifth star would come with a little more flavor like garlic,onion salt. Grandkids loved with ranch dressing.
I used an electric fry pan, because I have retired the deep fat fryer, worked great. My husband said these were some of the best chicken nuggets he has ever had. My picky eater child said they were not a 5 star, but were good and ate them. This is an even BETTER compliment believe me. Reminded us of deep fried cheese curds except with chicken. Fun for using dipping sauces.
Really Yummy & Easy to make!
Simple, Quick and Delicious. I made these chicken nuggets with a gluten-free 1:1 flour replacement (can't eat wheat anything), added white pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and a curious bottle labelled "Poultry seasoning", whatever's in that. I used pre-cooked popcorn chicken sized chunks. They only needed about a minute or so to fry to a light golden brown and they were ready. They're great for dipping. Try them with Sweet and Sour, Ranch and Honey mustard sauces. You will not be disappointed!
The batter is great, season it however you want. And milk in place of water works great.
I love these chicken nuggets! When I'm feeling lazy and don't want to cook something complex, I always cook these! My brothers love them as well!
I have a fry machine with a temperature gauge on it and they did not brown up at all like the pictures show. They were basically flavorless even after I added pepper and cajun seasoning.
Delicious ! So pleased with how they turned out. Light coating little sesame flavor and crunch.
My son always asks for nuggets and anything crispy. This is my first attempt at making homemade nuggets and they were delicious! My only complaint is that it was soggy! Upping the temp would risk the chicken being undercooked, my husband suggested to add a lil bit of cornstarch- I will try next time. I had to add a pinch of seasoned salt (lawry's) plus generous dashes of onion powder and garlic powder. Over all I definitely would make this again.
No changes, perfect as always.
I usually make panko style chicken tenders for my family. Tried this & the breading did not get crispy. I couldn't taste the sesame seeds.
Wow, they were amazing. I had none left after my nephew got home and smelled them, lol.
This was perfect! I wanted to have a nice coating for orange chicken over rice. I made it exactly as prescribed and it was great. I will forever remember this recipe. I only used one breast, pounded flat, and this recipe was just the right amount. I cant imagine it would work for 4 as stated. Sorry there's no picture. There was no time to waste.
