Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Healthier homemade nuggets compare to store bought!! Definitely will keep this recipe forever :D After slicing into small pieces, my boy can't help and eaten a few slices before I even deep fried them! :D

Spread in pan, ready to put into steamer, I lined the pan using baking paper instead of plastic wrap as I'm afraid whether the cling wrap (recent 塑化剂 food contamination cases in Taiwan!!) will actually contaminate the food! Though I quite sure is safe in Singapore, but better to play safe :D

After steaming...
Coated with eggs & breadcrumbs....

Recipe modified from Alice's Blog
  • 500g chicken breast, chopped till fine or process in a food processor
  • 1 big carrot - peel & finely grated
  • 2 eggs + 2 egg yolks - beaten (set aside the egg whites for coating later on)
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely grated
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1/4 tsp chicken stock powder
  • 2 tbsp sago flour / tapioca starch
  • 100gm breadcrumbs (coarse Japanese type)
  • 5 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 eggs - beaten, mix with the reserved egg whites
  1. Mix all ingredients til well incorporated, spread mixture over a lined 8" square pan.
  2. Steam on high heat for 15minutes. Cool completely.
  3. Cut into small rectangular. Slice each pieces horizontally to get a thinner nuggets.
  4. Dip each piece into beaten eggs, after that roll onto breadcrumbs till evenly coated.
  5. Keep in the freezer in the container for 30minutes. (Frozen nuggets can be stored till used)
  6. Deep fried till golden brown.
