"This is my family’s take on the classic chicken nuggets. We often like to experiment with the spices so that there’s always a change of palate and you are also most welcome to add/substitute spices to best fit your taste. I do hope you’ll try this version of homemade chicken nuggets and do let me know your thoughts in the comments section."

  • Step 1/ 8

    • 300 g chicken breasts
    • knife

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

  • Step 2/ 8

    • ½ tbsp garlic powder
    • tsp smoked paprika powder
    • 12½ 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

    • 50 g panko breadcrumbs
    • 35 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.

  • Enjoy your meal!
