Chef John's Buffalo Chicken Nuggets
Score big points on Game Day with full-flavored, buffalo-spicy, crispy-fried homemade chicken nuggets! Using chicken thigh meat to best replicate the flavor of wings, Chef John combines the chicken with bread crumbs, paprika, black pepper, Old Bay® seasoning, cayenne pepper, melted butter and hot pepper sauce in a blender. Portioned and chilled, the nuggets are then coated in cornstarch, flour and salt and fried briefly, then chilled until serving time. When your crowd is good and hungry, fry the nuggets until they’re golden and irresistible, and serve with traditional cool celery sticks and spicy bleu cheese and buffalo hot sauce dip!
