Recipe: Popcorn Chicken Nuggets

If you’re not already familiar with popcorn chicken nuggets, this recipe is very similar to southern fried chicken or buttermilk chicken. This recipe is for one person so can be handily scaled depending on how many mouths you have to feed.

15g                  white mustard seeds

5g                    smoked paprika

5g                    celery salt

5g                    cayenne pepper

Pinch               turmeric

Mix all above together. Set aside.

NUGGETS (quantity per person)

½                     Chicken breast – bite size chunks

2 tbls               Buttermilk

Marinade the chicken (small pieces of chopped breast meat) in buttermilk overnight (or 3-4 hours).

Take the chicken out, and roll it in the flour mix until dry. Fry in vegetable oil until crispy and golden brown on the outside and tender in the middle – approx. 4-5 minutes.
