Homemade Chicken Nuggets



  1. Beat the egg and then combine it with 1 cup water in a small, shallow bowl. Stir.
  2. Combine the flour, salt, Accent®, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder in a one-gallon size zip lock bag.
  3. Pound each of the breast filets with a mallet until about 1/4-inch thick. Trim each breast filet into bite-sized pieces.
  4. Coat each piece with the flour mixture by shaking in the zip lock bag.
  5. Remove and dredge each nugget in the egg mixture, coating well. Then return each nugget to the flour/seasoning mixture. Shake to coat. Put nuggets, bag and all, in the freezer for at least an hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining egg mixture.
  6. After freezing, repeat the "coating" process.
  7. Preheat the oven and a large cookie sheet to 375°F.
  8. Deep fry the chicken nuggets at 375°F for 10-12 minutes or until light brown and crispy (cook only about 9 at a time).
  9. Drain on paper towels for 3-5 minutes.
  10. Place the deep-fried nuggets on the preheated cookie sheet in the oven and bake for another 5-7 minutes.
  11. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
