Theedee's chicken nuggets

I don't have any babies of my own just yet but I do have little cousins,nephews and nieces who LOVE chicken nuggets. Just add some ketchup and French fries and you will have some very happy children. And I enjoy cooking with my little sweethearts, because they sometimes love being useful in the kitchen. So today we made some small chicken nuggets. It can be fried or baked, depending on what you want

Ingredients:
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs

Ps: You can increase the ingredients to your preference, this was for a very small group of people. 

Method:

  1. Wash chicken breast with lemon, then cut into very small pieces(look at picture below). season with spices then set aside 
  2. In 2 separate bowls, break the egg in one bowl, pour bread crumbs in the other bowl(if you have plain bread crumbs mix it with some small cayenne pepper) 
  3. If you are going to fry this,it needs to be deep frying on medium heat. If you are baking this preheat your oven to 320 degrees F.  
  4. Pick the chicken,dip into the egg then into the breadcrumbs then into the oil(if frying), set aside in a baking sheet(if baking). Make sure the chicken is well coated with the eggs because that's the only way the breadcrumbs is able to hold on.
  5. Fry or bake until golden brown, ENJOY! 

Ps:If you don't have breadcrumbs at home, do you have corn flakes(YES THE CEREAL), crush a cup full of cornflakes in a bowl until it resembles breadcrumbs, add a little cayenne pepper and do as it says in step 2. :-) 
Step by step, this was fried but you can also bake yours
