This concept of putting sriracha on everything may not be new to you but it is certainly new to me. I have a new found love and I want to share it with all of you, it's called sriracha chicken nuggets and it's basically the best thing ever. What I really love about this recipe is that it is super easy and fast depending on how much you make. The ingredients include:
2 Large Chicken Breast
See! Simple ingredients make marvelous food. So what I do first is set up my dipping station, and what I mean by that is I pull out a small bowl and pour my flour into the bowl. Next I crack my three eggs into a bowl and add about half a teaspoon of the sriracha to the eggs and then whisk the eggs until mixed well. (You can add more or less sriracha depending on how spicy you want) The next step is to again pull out a small bowl and pour the bread crumbs into the bowl. Next we have to cut the chicken breast into small squares, once you are done with that then you are ready to dip the chicken!
Dipping the chicken can get messy so I suggest using a fork and getting another plate to put the battered chicken on. What I like to do is line the flour, eggs, and bread crumbs up just like that and dip the chicken into each bowl covering the entire piece, then place it on the plate and repeat. Flour, Eggs, Crumbs, Repeat! Real simple. Once you're done with this process it is time to cook the nuggets. I don't have a fryer so I just use a pot or pan to fry my chicken in. What I do is pour the vegetable oil about 1/4 of the bottom of the pan or pot and set the burner to medium heat. The heating process should not take long and if you want to check if the oil is hot enough just wet your fingers with water and flick a drop of water into the pot, if the oil sizzles then it is ready!
When your oil is ready that means it is time to cook! Be sure to be-careful around the oil when you drop the nuggets in because it can splash and hurt you! The chicken nuggets will need to cook for around 5 to 7 minutes I would say before they are ready to come out of the oil. Continue this last step until all the nuggets are cooked. Oh and be sure to get an extra plate to put your cooked nuggets on!
I love this recipe because it is crunchy and tender with a little bite! I also suggest cooking up some sweet potato fries to complement the nuggets. Hope you guys love the recipe, and let me know in the comments if you have any questions!
