Crispy and Delicious Recipe for Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Making homemade chicken nuggets is a fun and delicious option. Here's a simple step-by-step recipe:

Homemade Chicken Nuggets:


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (plain or seasoned)

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • Cooking oil for frying


  1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 200°F (93°C). This will be used to keep the cooked nuggets warm while you fry the remaining batches.

  1. Prepare Breading Station:

  • Set up a breading station with three shallow bowls. In the first bowl, place the flour. In the second bowl, beat the eggs. In the third bowl, combine the breadcrumbs with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.

  1. Coat Chicken Pieces:

  • Take each piece of chicken and coat it first in the flour, shaking off excess. Dip it into the beaten eggs, allowing the excess to drip off. Finally, coat it in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing the breadcrumbs onto the chicken to adhere.

  1. Set Aside:

  • Place the breaded chicken pieces on a plate or tray, and repeat until all pieces are coated.

  1. Heat Oil:

  • In a large skillet or frying pan, heat about 1 inch of cooking oil over medium heat. You can use vegetable oil, canola oil, or any oil suitable for frying.

  1. Fry Chicken Nuggets:

  • Carefully place the breaded chicken pieces into the hot oil in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Fry for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through.

  1. Drain on Paper Towels:

  • Once cooked, use a slotted spoon to transfer the nuggets to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.

  1. Keep Warm in Oven:

  • Place the cooked nuggets in the preheated oven to keep them warm while you fry the remaining batches.

  1. Repeat:

  • Repeat the breading and frying process until all the chicken pieces are cooked.

  1. Serve:

  • Serve the homemade chicken nuggets with your favorite dipping sauces like ketchup, barbecue sauce, or honey mustard.

Enjoy your homemade chicken nuggets! They're perfect for a tasty snack or as a main dish for kids and adults alike.
