I have adapted this easy to make recipe from Alan Coxon’s Chicken Nuggets recipe from Great Food Live on the uktv FOOD website. I’ve added marjoram or oregano and almonds or walnuts to the crumb mixture to make the chicken nuggets tastier. You could also use half and half of either of these alternatives: a pinch of both marjoram and oregano and perhaps 2 almonds and 1 walnut! If you are going to be serving these to children, it’s probably best to use a mild, sweet paprika. It’s certainly a recipe that children ready to help in the kitchen could take part in preparing. Perhaps then they’ll see chicken nuggets as something you make yourself and eat at home rather than as a fast food choice. If making this only for adults and you like some bite in your food, add the appropriate quantity of your favourite spicy ingredient in the crumbs or in the accompanying salsa or relish. But if you're looking for a milder salsa, you might like to try my Apple Mint Yoghurt SalsaApple Mint Yoghurt Salsa. Remember that smaller nuggets will require more crumbs and will cook more quickly. For the benefit of any others like internetnut wanting to make this recipe and not having access to conversion charts, I have added the conversions below.
