Ground chicken Egg Egg yolk Salt Cornstarch All-purpose flour
Water Black pepper Paprika Garlic powder Onion powder Vegetable oil
Mix the egg yolk, ground chicken and salt together in a large bowl.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and start putting the chicken into small 1 tablespoon-sized nuggets. Then, place them on the baking sheet and repeat the process until all the chicken is shaped.
Coat each chicken nugget piece with cornstarch and set aside on the baking sheet. Repeat the process until all the nuggets are coated with cornstarch.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, water, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and egg. This should make a thick and slightly runny batter.
Using a fork dip each piece of chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Place the nuggets back on the lined baking sheet and freeze for 1-2 hours to allow them to set.
Heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil in a deep skillet or pot to 350°F. Carefully add the chicken nuggets to the hot oil in batches. Fry for about 4-5 minutes.
Using tongs, remove the chicken nuggets from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil. Serve with your fav sauce and enjoy!
