Breaded Chicken Nuggets

Few foods are more kid-friendly than nuggets, and they will more yummy and healthy if they are homemade ones...

egg 1
buttermilk 1/3 cup (can be made at home, add 1 tbsp of vinegar/lemon juice in 1 cup of milk)
boneless skinless chicken, cut into bite size pieces 1 lb
bread crumbs 1 1/2 cups
paprika 1/4 tsp
garlic powder 1 tsp
salt 1  tsp (to taste)
pepper 1 tsp (to taste)
oil 1/2 cup for frying

First, whisk the egg and buttermilk in a medium bowl

soak chicken pieces in egg mixture while you gather remaining ingredients

meanwhile, in another shallow bowl combine bread crumbs with paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper

lift chicken from buttermilk, letting excess liquid drain back into the bowl, then dip into crumb mixture and turn to coat on all sides..

repeat the same process with each piece... and keep them in single layer

heat oil in over medium heat....carefully place chicken in oil and cook until they are golden and crispy and cooked through, about for 5 minutes per side....

transfer chicken to the paper towel to absorb the excess oil... serve and enjoy :)
