Crispy Chicken Nuggets 香脆鸡柳

Photo updated June 15, 2017

Do you know what chicken nuggets are made of? Mine is just chicken meat and some simple seasoning. Cooking for my boy, I'd never buy frozen nuggets, do you know why? 

Next time when you pop by the supermarket, get a pack of frozen nugget and read the ingredients labeled on the packaging. You'll find the answer there ;)

There are many ways to make nuggets at home. I have tried making it with minced chicken and vegetables, curry flavor nuggets, alphabet nuggets, Parmesan cheese nuggets...etc because my boy loves nuggets! 

That's how I serve nuggets for lunch, with blanched vegetables, steamed egg and rice.
