Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets Recipe
- Prep time: 15 Minutes
- Cook time: 8 Minutes
- Total time: 23 Minutes
- Serves: 4
- In a bowl, combine the gluten-free plain flour, onion powder, and garlic powder.
- Crack the egg into a separate bowl and beat slightly.
- Lastly, add the breadcrumbs into yet another bowl.
- One by one, coat the chicken in the following order. First, gluten-free plain flour mix, secondly; the beaten egg, and thirdly; the breadcrumbs. Repeat until you have coated all the chicken.
- Heat the oil in a deep fryer until it is 175°C (350°F).
- In batches, cook the chicken. Four minutes per side should be enough to cook the chicken and brown the crumb.
- Once cooked, transfer to a plate lined with some paper towel.
- Serve & Enjoy.
- You can bake these in the oven rather than deep-frying. Just preheat an oven to 180°C (350°F). Turn them halfway through cooking or use a wire rack. These techniques will ensure an evenly cooked chicken nugget.
- If you are unsure whether the chicken is cooked, either slice into one or use a meat thermometer to check the temperature. If you are using a meat thermometer, make sure the center of the chicken gets to 75°C (165°F).
- Try to cut the chicken into even pieces. Uneven pieces will all cook at different speeds, which may lead to some being overcooked while others are undercooked.
- If you love a thick coating on your nuggets, then simply repeat step four. This will add another layer of breadcrumbs on top of the current layer of breadcrumbs.
