Quick Chicken Nuggets

Needing a quick meal for tea, we decided chicken nuggets would be a good idea.  Gathering together a chicken breast, a packet of salted crisps and an egg we made a speedy meal in less than 15 minutes. 

The packet of crisps was left closed and the crisps were crushed.  Then they were placed in a bowl.  Some butter and oil was added to a frying pan over a medium heat.

A beaten medium egg was put in another bowl and the chicken was cut into bite sized chunks.

Having dipped the chicken in the egg wash, it was coated in the crisps and added to the frying pan.  After a few minutes, the chicken was turned and it was left to cook through.

Sous Chef J declared this to be "brilliant"... and, seeing as he ate the lot in record time, it did seem to be a successful quick meal to make!


  1. Hi Louise and J,

    Thank you so much for this recipe. We made these nuggets last friday night and they were a huge success. We made them very late on friday night when we were both exhausted and they were just the ticket. We didn't have any crisps in the house, so we used cornflakes, which worked very well. Tony crushed them up, and I followed your method to the letter apart from this. The only piece of advice I'd give if anyone is trying this is not to use the pre-cut chicken breast packs from the supermarket. We did and some of the chunks are just so small you can't really cook them, so we will use whole breasts next time.

    A roaring success. Thank you again!

      So pleased you gave this a go varying it to suit your ingredients - that's our sort of cooking! Even better that you and Tony liked the result :-)
