Chicken Nuggets

Chicken nuggets are one staple most children love and want. You can buy them if you like, but they are RIDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE. Instead, make your own.

There are a lot of ways to do it, and I'll add one each recipe as I gather them. This first one is the one I use.

All-purpose GF baking flour of your choice
Potato chips


  1. Wash and cut up your chicken. I like to pound each piece with a tenderizer to make them flatter and easier to cook through. It also makes them easier to eat, more like commercial nuggets.
  2. Crush your potato chips by putting them in a plastic bag and whacking it with a tenderizer, then rolling it with a rolling pin. You can also put them in a food processor, but NOT a mixer.
  3. Set up your assembly line: a bowl with 1/2 cup flour, a bowl with 1 beaten egg, and a bowl of 1 cup crushed up potato chips.
  4. Get your frying pan hot on medium heat and pour in about 1-2 tablespoons olive oil.
  5. Begin:
    1. Cover each piece with flour.
    2. Shake off excess and cover with egg.
    3. Let excess drip off and cover in potato chips
    4. Put directly into the pan
  6. Once the sides are cooked, flip and cook the other side.
  7. Put cooked pieces on a drying rack.
  8. Add more flour, egg, and chips as needed.
  9. Once cooled, put in a freezer bag and freeze for up to two months.
