I’m blessed with amazing sisters-in-law who are also excellent cooks on both sides of the family. These delicious chicken nuggets are from my husband’s sister Leah. They’re flavorful and crispy, and a welcome break from cold cuts at the Shabbos morning seudah. I usually double this because there’s so much noshing on Friday afternoon as they’re fried...


You can just serve the nuggets with sweet chili sauce, but if you have the time, this homemade dipping sauce is worth the minimal effort.

Prepare the Chicken Nuggets

  1. Cut the chicken cutlets into nuggets.

  2. In a large bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Place all the nuggets into the coating mixture and ensure each nugget is well coated.

  3. Heat oil in a frying pan and fry the chicken in batches, making sure not to crowd the pan.

Prepare the Sweet-and-Sour Dipping Sauce
