Safe Chicken Nuggets
So, I started making Derek's homemade chicken nuggets with brown rice flour, but the texture is so odd. It's more gritty than regular flour so it doesn't stick as well, which makes it not coat as nicely as wheat flour.
I tried cornflour last night and it was so much better! It coated just as well, if not better than wheat flour!
I added a bit of seasoning to spice it up a bit, and they were very tasty! I would probably not do the curry again, as it wasn't bad, but just not the right flavor for a typical chicken nugget :)
But, will definitely stick with using the cornflour! Yey!
1 chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 cup corn flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/4 cup canola oil
1. Place corn flour and seasonings into a small zip-loc bag. Drop chicken pieces into bag, zip, and toss to coat.
2. Heat oil in skillet until hot. Add coated chicken, and cook for about 8-10 minutes, or until cooked through, turning occasionally.
