A fun and easy change of pace from the usual chicken dinner. The chili mayo kicks it up a notch, but feel free to leave out if your kids don’t go for hot.



  • 1 pound (450 grams) ground chicken

  • 10 ounces (300 grams) frozen or canned corn, coarsely ground in the food processor

  • 2 tablespoons Haddar Teriyaki Sauce or 1 tablespoon ketchup plus 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats, ground to a fine consistency

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or 2 cubes Gefen Frozen Garlic

  • 1/2 an onion, finely chopped and lightly sautéed (optional)

  • salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • pitas or tortillas, for serving

  • scallions and fresh parsley, for garnish, or fresh vegetables of your choice


  • oil, for frying or baking

Chili Mayonnaise

  • salt, to taste

  • pepper, to taste

  • 4 tablespoons water


Prepare the Chicken


Place nugget ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Shape into balls. Dip into bread crumbs mixed with sesame seeds.


Heat 2/3 inch (one and a half centimeters) oil in a frying pan. Fry nuggets on both sides until golden, working in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. (Alternatively, preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a pan lined with Gefen Parchment Paper and arrange nuggets on top. Spray well with cooking spray. Bake about 13 minutes, until golden.)


Combine all chili mayonnaise ingredients and mix well.


Spread the mayonnaise in a pita or a warm tortilla. Place nuggets inside and add fresh vegetables.
