With all the recent information about the ingredients in McDonald’s chicken nuggets, I don’t think I can ever eat one again. The ingredients for these homemade organic chicken nuggets only cost $8.00 for 2 and 1/2 dozen. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think that is LESS than it would cost for the same number of McD’s chicken nuggets.
This recipe is SO WORTH the 20-30 minutes it takes to make them! They are delicious! Plus, they’re gluten free, dairy free, egg free, and organic!
Here’s how you make ’em. . .
1 lb. organic or local ground chicken
1 and 1/2 c. chick pea flour
1 t. salt
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 t. oregano
1/2 t. pepper
1/4 c. water
oil for frying
1/2 c. chick pea flour
1 t. salt
1 t. garlic powder
1. Combine all ingredients except oil and mix well.
2. Combine coating ingredients on a plate.
3. Form ground chicken mixture into 1 in. balls and then flatten and shape into desired ‘nuggety’ shape.
4. Heat oil in skillet, coat in chick pea flour mixture and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side in very hot oil. Drain on paper towels.
