Homemade Chicken Nugget Sticks

Total Time: 30 mins        Prep Time: 10 mins         Cooking Time: 20 min.   Serves 4


Large Frying Pan


Plastic Bag

Sharp Knife


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1.5 cup prepared breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup vegetable oil


  • Put the flour in a plastic bag and season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place the chicken pieces in the bag with the flour and toss to coat (work in batches). Transfer the breadcrumbs to a rimmed plate, season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Whisk the egg and 1 tablespoon water in a medium bowl. Remove a piece of chicken from the flour, dip in the egg mixture, then the breadcrumbs, gently pressing the crumbs into the chicken, and set on a clean plate. Repeat with the remaining pieces of chicken.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces to the pan (work in batches if needed) and brown on each side, about 8 minutes total. Use a spatula to transfer the chicken nuggets to a paper-towel-lined plate. Season while hot and serve with chips or vegetables or just a dipping sauce.
