My kids love the crunch and flavor of these nuggets, and they came up with the perfect name: Super Snack Chicken! Their favorite part is the taste and texture. My favorite part about these adorable nuggets—and I’m sure it will be yours too—they are fried in the oven, so no stovetop mess!

Ingredients

Main ingredients

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1 and 1/2 pounds chicken breast, cut into nuggets

  • 2 cups Gefen Cornflake Crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons shawarma spice


Wine Pairing

Binyamina Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

Directions

Prepare the Chicken Nuggets

1.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2.

In a small bowl, mix eggs and flour. Add chicken nuggets and toss to coat.

3.

In a separate bowl, combine cornflake crumbs, sesame seeds, shawarma spice, salt, garlic powder and onion powder. Coat nuggets fully in crumb mixture.

4.

Heat oil in a nine- by 13-inch baking tray. You will know the oil is hot enough when you hear it sizzle. Make sure not to overheat it so it doesn’t burn. Fry nuggets in batches, uncovered, for 15 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

If you have an air fryer setting, I would think you probably would not have to add any oil to the bottom of the pan. I would spray the chicken nuggets with some oil spray and they should come out crispy. Maybe test a few to see if they come out the way you like them and if not, then I would just follow the directions.

It is so much easier in the oven as there is no mess and also I find fried is so oily.

Hi, it seems that these are ‘fried’ in the oven. You place the oil in a nine- by 13-inch baking tray and heat it in the oven. Then you place the chicken in it and cook for 15 min on each side. I am sure you can also make this all on the stove top as well if you’d like.
