Crispy Chicken Nuggets are a big hit around here. But they don’t like the ones you buy at the store. Which is great actually because I hate buying them.
There is just something so satisfying about having homemade chicken nuggets! Not full of fillers, or other junk, and the taste is a hundred times better when you make them from scratch! This recipe, is SO simple. It’s a bit of a process, but not terribly long, and the recipe is so easy it can be thrown together in minutes! The tangy sauce is the perfect addition to these crispy nuggets.
2 sleeves of ritz crackers crushed
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 ½ cups coconut milk
1 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken cut into 1-inch pieces
15 ounces of tomato sauce
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
2/3 cup honey
Oil for frying
½ tsp. salt ½ tsp. pepper
Mix together the crushed crackers, salt and pepper in shallow bowl. Pour milk into separate shallow bowl. Place 4-5 nuggets in milk, and then coat in crushed cracker mixture. Deep fry at 350 degrees for 3-4 minutes. Remove and place on paper towel. Repeat until you have finished all the chicken.
For the BBQ sauce, mix all ingredients together in medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 25 minutes (while you are frying your chicken). Can be served with the nuggets warm, or allow to cool first.
