Chicken Nuggets

Pin It Now!

One day my younger son asking for chicken nuggets. I was surprise because I never prepare nuggets for him before. After some conversation then I know he ate in school during party time.

I read about chicken nuggets recipe sometimes from fellow blogger friends. After some surfing I find it in Alex (I Love. I Cook. I Bake ) and Peng’s Kitchen blogs. Without any hesitate I get all the ingredients ready and here comes homemade chicken nuggets. My two kids and even their daddy like these nuggets very much! Thanks to them for sharing this great recipe. I definitely will make again.

Adapted and slightly modified from Alex and Peng's Kitchen
~ Nuggets
500g chicken breast (slice and chopped finely)
1 medium carrot (grated finely)
2 eggs (original use additional 2 egg yolks. That’s why mine turn out pale instead of yellowish)
1 tbsp fried onion (omit)
1 tsp white pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp fish sauce
1/4 tsp chicken stock powder(omit)
2 tbsp cornflour(original use sago flour / tapioca starch)
4 tbsp instant oatmeal(original use breadcrumbs)
5 tbsp mayonnaise

~ For coating
2 eggs(slightly beaten)
Some breadcrumbs

~ Nuggets
1. Lined 8" square pan with baking paper. Lightly coat with oil.
*Bigger pan will get thinner batter. I'm pretty happy with this thickness.

2. Mix all ingredients till well incorporated. Pour the batter into the greased pan. Smooth the surface with spatula.

3. Bring water to boil. Steam on high heat for 15 minutes or till cooked.

4. Let it cool. Cut into shape of your choice with cookies cutter.
(or just cut  small rectangular shape as Alex and Peng Kitchen did.)

5. Dip each piece into beaten eggs, after that roll onto breadcrumbs till evenly coated.

6. Keep inside container and place in freezer for 30 minutes.
* You can store in this stage for future used.

7. Deep fry or pan fry till golden brown. Enjoy!

  9. Hi Vivian, thank you for the recipe. May I know do I need to defrost the nuggets after freezing 30 minutes? If I store them for future use, do I need to defrost them before frying also? Thank you.


    1. No need to defrost. Just pan fry with low heat till golden brown. I can't see your comment in my crispy skim roast chicken post. So I reply here as well. Regarding picture on holding chicken with mineral bottle, do click the link for crispy skin roast duck post.

    2. Thanks for your reply, vivian! I just hopped over to the roast chicken and did not see my comment and I have posted again. Since you have answered my question here already, please ignore my comment.

    3. Sorry vivian, I just realised that you did not reply my query as to whether I can use drumstick for the roasted chicken instead of the whole chicken. Thanks


    4. I haven't try. Not sure the result is as crispy as whole chicken or not. Will inform as I'm going to make it again but only with thighs and drums attached.

  10. I like your posting so komplit and easy to understand

  11. Hello....Can you tell me how do you steam i need to take a large pot and put water in it....and bring it to boil...than put my greased pan in I need to cover the pot and If i will cover the pot will it not moist the greased pan...its confusing ....pls clarify??????

    1. I steam with wok. Once the water come to rapid boil, place the batter square pan inside wok. Make sure cover the square pan with cling film(heat proof type) to avoid condensation.

  12. I make the same thing, but don’t bake it for anywhere near as long. Ten minutes on one side, turn over, and five on the other. Make sure to spray some veg spray before baking, and when you turn them over. In my experience, the short baking time guarantees that they will be really moist.
