Easy No-fry Chicken Nuggets

Easy No-fry Chicken Nuggets

These aren't fried, so they'll help you cut down on calories. They can be frozen for later.

Ingredients: 10 to 12 nuggets

☆Ground chicken thigh
160 g
☆Egg
1
☆ Panko
3 tablespoons
☆Salt
A dash
☆Pepper
A dash
Katakuriko (or cake flour)
As needed
Salt
A dash

Steps

1. Combine all ☆ ingredients and mix well. Form into round and flattened patties.
2. Dust both sides of the patties with katakuriko.
3. Heat vegetable oil in a pan and grill both sides until browned. Turn the heat to low and cover the pan. Cook well.
4. Serve with a little salt.
5. I usually freeze them! It's very handy because if you pack them in bentos in the morning, it will defrost naturally by lunchtime!
6. If the meat mixture is too sticky and hard to form, add more panko.
7. If you want them soft and fluffy, I recommend you prepare them without panko.

Story Behind this Recipe

When I had just started to cook my husband's bentos, I wanted to come up with a recipe for homemade cold dishes that I could pack in lunchboxes as is.
