  • blender
  • baking sheet
  • Step 1/8

    • 600 g chicken breasts
    • knife

    Wash and cut the chicken breasts into bite-size pieces.

  • Step 2/8

    • 1 tbsp garlic powder
    • 3 tsp smoked paprika powder
    • 25 ml vodka
    • salt

    Sprinkle the garlic powder, the paprika, salt as per your taste and the vodka and mix well. If this is kid-friendly, you can skip the alcohol altogether. Allow to marinate for at least two hours in the refrigerator however if you can prepare this and allow it to rest overnight, awesome!

  • Step 3/8

    • 100 g panko breadcrumbs
    • 70 g potato chips
    • blender

    In a hand blender, add the potato chips and the breadcrumbs and pulse until well-combined. Don’t pulverise it too much. It should remain coarse to feel.

  • Step 4/8

    Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F)

  • Step 5/8

    • eggs

    Beat the eggs and keep aside. In another dish, keep the flour ready. Finally, in a third dish, empty your breadcrumbs and chips mixture from the blender.

  • Step 6/8

    Here’s a handy tip. I like to use my left hand for the dry ingredients and the right hand for the wet. Give the chicken a good mix and then take a piece and coat it with the egg. Then cover it with the flour and shake off the excess. Give the same piece a quick coat in the egg once more and then coat with the breadcrumbs mixture. Your chicken nugget is ready!

  • Step 7/8

    • baking sheet

    Coat all the pieces of chicken in this similar manner and place on a baking sheet lined with butter paper. Bake at 200°C (400°F) for 20 minutes or until golden brown. You might have to turn them over halfway.

  • Step 8/8

    Serve hot with a dipping of your choice.
