Emeril's Barbeque Chicken Nuggets
I have tried many different chicken nugget recipes but Emeril has "hit it" out of the park with this one.
I recently checked-out a couple of his cookbooks, from the library, and that's where I found this gem.
This recipe comes from "There is a Chef in my Soup! Recipes for the Kid in Everyone" This cookbook is full of excellent recipes. The recipes were created for kids, to get them involved in the kitchen.
Please give the nuggets a try. Full of flavor, a bold flavor! I served them with Homemade Ranch Dressing. Oh la la.
Don't forget the chicken. smile. I used 3 medium size chicken breasts and it fed the kids and I. Next time, when preparing for the entire family, I will have to use 4 large chicken breasts.
Cut your chicken into bite size pieces or chunks. (about 1 inch in size)
In medium size bowl, add seasoning and barbecue sauce.
Add chicken to the bowl and stir to coat. Stir real good.
In a big plastic resealable baggie, add 3 cups cornflakes.
Seal up baggie and try to get all the air out. Mash cornflakes with your palm. (My little sweetie was helping in the kitchen.)
a different method....
You can use a rolling pin to crush your cornflakes...my daughter thought she was a big girl. Tooo cute!
Add chicken to baggie.
Shake to coat, making sure every piece of chicken is coated evenly. Please shake gently.
Cover rimmed cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Put chicken pieces on cookie sheet.
Bake for 18-22 minutes.
