Easy Chicken Nuggets Ingredients with Cheese

  • 1 kilogram Chicken Breast cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 500 Grams cheddar cheese cut into cubes
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Salt
  • 4 large eggs beaten, for egg wash
  • 2 cups dry breadcrumbs
  • Oil for frying


  • Using a paring knife cut a hole at the bottom of a chicken cube.
  • Insert a cube of cheese inside the hole, making sure that it’s all the way in. Do that for all the chicken cubes. When done, pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Set aside.
  • In a shallow plate, combine flour, paprika, onion powder, granulated garlic, ground black pepper, and salt well.
  • Coat a chicken cube completely with seasoned flour. Dip it in egg wash.
  • Shake off the excess egg wash when you pull it up. Coat with breadcrumbs.
  • Deep-fry in 180 degrees C (350 degrees F) oil for about 10 to 15 minutes or until it’s golden brown. When done, drain extra oil using a paper towel. Plate and serve.
