Cheesy Chicken Nuggets Recipe
Cheesy Chicken Nuggets Ingredients
- 1/2 kilo chicken breast fillets chopped small
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese finely grated
- 1 Cup sweet kernel corn
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 liters canola oil for deep-frying
- 1 Cup mayonnaise for serving
- Salt to serve
- ground black pepper to taste
- In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, corn, eggs, and flour. Season to taste with salt and ground black pepper. Set aside.
- In a deep sauté pan over medium heat, heat enough oil for deep frying. Test seasoning of fritter batter, and adjust.
- Drop the chicken mixture by the heaping tablespoonful into the hot oil. Avoid crowding the pan. Use a slotted spoon to remove fritters as each floats to the top. Drain on a rack over paper towels.
- Meanwhile, mix mayonnaise and mustard together. Serve fritters immediately with the mayo-mustard dip or pack together with steamed rice. Recipe originally published in the September 2016 issue of Good Housekeeping.
